Aldo's Fantastical Movie Palace



Here is a book cover illustration (cover design by Kris Nelson) for Jonathan Friesen's new book, "Aldo's Fantastical Movie Palace", published by ZonderKidz. I was also asked to work on a spot for the front flap as well.

About the book:
In the Darkness of this Theater, Anything Can Happen The family's broken-down theater has always been a safe place for Chloe. There, no one can see the scars that line her face---scars her inventor father accidentally caused, leaving even deeper wounds between them. In the darkness she meets Nick, a boy with his own hurts. While Nick isn't the most pleasant companion, a rocky friendship is formed over their love of films. Soon the two are working on a movie script about a fantastical world---one that suddenly comes alive on the screen. Chloe and Nick are transported into an adventure beyond what they ever imagined, filled with dragons, magical pools, and a sinister vapor that threatens to destroy everyone. But when tragedy strikes, Chloe must find the courage to step out of the shadows and find what she's always longed for.

I have recently received a copy and it looks really great with the foil stamping on the title (beautiful work Kris!!). Please check here for more information about the book! Thank you for reading!
