The Bowl and the Stone

This is a cover I illustrated for a new middle grade novel by Bish Denham. The Bowl and the Stone is a spooky tale set in the Virgin Islands in the early 60s. I was especially intrigued by a description of one of the main characters, so I knew I wanted to include his silhouette on the cover. I added the foliage to the foreground because even with the story’s haunting feel, I still wanted to give a hint of the island flavor that is so prevalent in Bish’s stories.

Look for The Bowl and the Stone if you know any kids in the 8-12 age group that love a good mystery. It’s available for pre-order on Amazon and will be available soon in both print and ebook format.

I’ve illustrated covers for two other books by Bish Denham: Anansi and Company: Retold Jamaican Tales and A Lizard’s Tail.
