#covermakeover Week 1 STORM BOY by Colin Thiele

A New Year and an old challenge resurfaces under new management! Julie Powell, Photographer & Graphic Artist, has taken over from Desley Jane of Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist and Lucile of Lucile de Goday to administer the weekly Cover Makeover Challenge and I couldn’t be more delighted.

I created this cover using Searching the Sands as my background before adding an Australian pelican photograph by Toby Hudson which I found on  Wikimedia. This I layered over the Sands image in Photoshop’s Screen mode.

The title font is Zapfino Regular, and the author and ’10th Anniversary Edition’ are in Skia Regular.

Synopsis – Storm Boy likes to wander alone along the fierce deserted coast among the dunes that face out into the Southern Ocean. After a pelican mother is shot, Storm Boy rescues the three chicks, and nurses them back to health. He names them Mr Proud, Mr Ponder and Mr Percival. After he releases them, his favourite, Mr Percival, returns. The story then concentrates on the conflict between his lifestyle and the externally imposed requirement for him to attend a school, and the fate of the pelican.
