Dear Earthling,


Greetings! My name is Dethbert Jones. I live on a planet called Crank in a galaxy far away from the blue planet you call "Earth," and I really need your help!

My best friend Andi Social said robots are the best at designing book covers. I disagree, but I’m not that good at drawing so wondered if you’d like to have a go? The humans at Common Deer Press have agreed to collect all the Earth designs and compare them to Andi’s. So, are you up to the challenge?



Download an Entry Form, read the Rules and Regulations, and get started! If you get stuck you could ask a robot friend to help, or failing that a parent or teacher, maybe?


Best of luck!


PS: I’m giving you some helpful design tips.                                                                                


The Prizes! 


Each of the THREE winners will receive five (5) print copies of the book Dear Earthling: Cosmic Correspondent, by Pen Avey with their original front cover on it. AND, their name will appear on the copyright page beside the words "cover illustrator."
