We do have an initial cover on www.tremendaspie.com.au. The picture on that is too low res. You can use photos or illustrations for the cover, we are not set on anything at this stage. You don't need to copy what is on the site, we are looking for different ideas.
What colors do you want to see in your print design?
Anything cheery, greens (grass), blue (sky).
What colors do you NOT want to see in your print design?
What adjectives should best describe your print design?
Light-hearted, delightful, positive.

Jack doesn't always see the world in the usual way and is constantly surprised by the amount of trouble he manages to find himself in. While celebrating his tenth birthday, Jack makes a promise to himself, to finally be accepted and become the most normal and popular kid in school. He gives himself a whole year...365 days...8,760 hours...525,600 minutes...31,536,000 seconds to achieve his dream. But as Jack counts down the seconds to normality he starts to question how normal the normal people really are and, in doing so, begins to value his own Aspergian traits...for being different isn't so wrong after all....
A refreshing and inspirational tale told through the eyes of a child with Asperger's Syndrome.
