Isn’t it beautiful? I’m so completely in love with this cover design and I’m so excited to finally be able to share it with all of you! I’m especially obsessed with the way the cover is split in two, and the way the top hat crosses into both sections- it so symbolic.
Here is the back cover blurb:
London, 1882. When 14-year-old Emil’s cousin goes missing amidst a string of murders, he manoeuvres himself onto the case with his guardian, inspector Corwin James of Scotland Yard. Through careful examination of the suspicious notes left at the crime scenes and of the unsettling pattern the deaths take on, the two begin to piece the curious murders together into a case with more questions than answers. Who is behind the Wonderland Murders? What do all the victims have in common? And can the murderer be stopped?
As Emil draws closer and closer to discovering the truth, it becomes clearer by the minute that the case is more personal than he wants to admit. Though he tries to avoid it, the more he investigates, the more the past forces itself into his consciousness, and what he learns will take him down the rabbit hole—again. Does he have it in him to stop the Mad Hatter and to save himself?
I’m beyond excited to show this to all of you! It makes everything feel so real!
Mad as a Hatter will be available at the end of the month, if everything goes to plan. It’s geared towards middle grade readers and younger teenagers, but I hope it’s enjoyable for everyone! I can’t wait to hear what you think of the cover design, and I’ll be back soon with more news and announcements!
