Description

The challenge was to create a cover that looked more like a classic than a children’s book for this memoir about the author guiding a baby whale to its mother.

Juror Notes

“All the elements—the smiling whale, the typography, the color—contribute to make this a very charming jacket, appealing to children and adults alike.”
