Slugboy saves the world, book cover competition

I entered the competition to design book cover for Floris books - Kelpies Design & Illustration Price. This is book aimed on 8 - 12 years old children and just form the small paragraph I read in the brief, it is very funny book written by Mark Smith.  My book cover was unfortunately not shortlisted, but anyone interested to vote for 10 finalists, can do so here.

This is the summary of the book provided by Floris books.

Thanks to an unfortunately tasty-looking radioactive garden slug, 11-year-old Murdo McLeod is now the world’s worst superhero. His two powers are pretty unique: the first is sliding up walls. The second is secreting slippery slime from his skin. (Yes, just as disgusting as it sounds.)

In a world where superhero competition is  fierce, Slugboy doesn’t make the grade. No one wants help  fighting bad guys from someone with a horrible habit of (quite literally) messing things up. He’s so underrated, in fact, that when an evil mastermind devises a plan to capture all the other superheroes, Slugboy isn’t even on his list.

Now, Slugboy has to use his not-so-super and oh-so-gross abilities to free the other superheroes and save the world. Let’s hope he doesn’t slip up.
