|My cover design for A Hallowe'en Story by M. Pothier|
I love a good ghost story any time of year myself, so let me fill you in on it...
The author describes the story as follows:
“Halloween is in a few days and Billy wants to do something very different and special. What he has in mind does not go exactly as planned, but is certainly both different and special. Some would say pretty spooky, too.”
Here's a little more info from yours truly and a sneak peek at the new illustrations:
This book would be great for all ages as a read-to around the campfire, at a sleep-over or of course for next Halloween! The book has a beginner's reading level around grade 3 or 4 (my opinion, not specified by the author). It is not too scary for little ones and has some pretty funny moments.
I enjoyed creating the illustrations which were a departure for me from my usual color work. The pen and ink drawings are influenced by one of my favorite illustrators, the great Edward Gorey. I designed the cover to look like an old photo album. There are 10 very detailed interior illustrations that depict the author’s favorite scenes.
