Cover Love- Mickey Malloy Wonder Boy! with GIVEAWAY

My sister revealed the cover of her upcoming book and I love it, so I'm giving it a shameless plug. It is a middle grade called Mickey Malloy Wonder Boy! by Laurisa White Reyes. It will release in March 2018.


Cover and inside Illustrations by Matt Easterbrook

I just find this a great middle grade cover. It's got the super heroish boy with made-up cape and the smart, shrewd girl eyeing him on the side. The lizard is a great touch, especially since it seems surprised to be there. The title font is catchy and easy to read for a younger reader. For some reason, perhaps the checkered cape, I get a feeling that pizza might be involved? Who knows. It is definitely eye catching. What do you think? One lucky commenter will get a free copy signed by both the author and illustrator!

    1. Part of the book takes place in school. Thus the globe. Plus hoping this will become a series.
