Challenge! Create a Book Cover for this Bookless Character

Last week I passed along a question author/illustrator Matthew Cordell posed on Facebook: who is this character on the walls of Barnes & Noble stores across the country?

Update: no one knows.

So author/illustrator Aaron Zenz had a good idea: why not take matters into our own hands?

Lets give this little blue wolf (a wolf, right? Wolf? I don’t know) a home!

I challenge anyone and everyone to create a book cover featuring this character. Tweet your cover with the hashtag #LBB or email them to me at scopenotes@gmail.com.

In one week I’ll post a gallery of submissions.

I’ll go first:

This will be fun.
