Children's novel for 8 to 14 year-olds.
What's your vision?
I would like a book cover designed (ebook cover, and paperback jacket), for a children's novel, aimed at 8 to 14 year-olds. The novel's protagonists are 4 children who discover they can turn into a lion, a cheetah, an eagle, and a bear respectively. They are helping a knight called the Black Prince (photo of him attached) save the world from an evil giant (giant is 12 foot tall rather than the godzilla variety) who has stopped time (so clocks are a theme). Looking at the current theme of book covers for the age range above (see attached screen shots from Amazon top books), I would suggest for the design to have a primary colour background, and contain one key piece of artwork consisting of some of the characters mentioned above. Note that the book is quite dark, so probably prefer not to have 'cutsey' style artwork. That said, this is only my instinct, and I am open to any ideas no matter how off the wall. The cover must have the title "The Giants of Time" and the author name "Mallory Leigh".
The blurb for the back cover is: George, Oliver, Isobel and Felix are happy with their lives in a small village, up in the dales. Happy that is, until one day the world suddenly comes to an abrupt stop: the clocks no longer tick, the sun doesn’t set, but worst of all their family and friends are frozen still like statues. They are thrown into an alternate world where they must help the mysterious Black Prince defeat the evil giant Goëmagot, who has somehow stopped time as part of his plan to conquer the world. The four children and their new friends need to solve the mystery of how the giant stopped the clocks, and along the way learn how they each have a special power of their own… But can they do this in time to rescue their families?
