I need a book cover designed

The title of the book is: My 4 year old is An Alien!!
Sub-Title: 10 Winning Steps to Self-Concept formation
Author: Eleanor Wint

I need the front cover to have an illustration of part child part alien but the child is the prominent feature.. . Issues of colour and sex must be inconsequential as the 4 year old to whom I am speaking is universal. The cover should feel and look Bright, funny and very loving
Needs to be print ready, front and back cover and spine (Will give the exact layout details later)
We can talk about this more so you are free to be creative

Somewhere on the back cover we will need to include the following;
Drawing on over 20 years of experience, the author helps
readers to:
• Understand the specific SHINE techniques
• Understand the dynamic family responsibilities as families change
• Transform negative self-talk into parental self empowerment
• Help Dads and Grand-dads as they contribute to their children’s self concept formation
• Grow unique, respectful and lasting bonds between child and parent
• Use basic, enjoyable literacy skills and activities to fuel the self concept development
There is also special help for Dads and Grand-dads as they contribute to their children’s self concept formation

Further requirements

This is a book for parents and caregivers.

It is a combined book and workbook which teaches parents and caregivers how to develop the self concept of the 3-5 year old. The book also introduces the SHINE!! technique of Parenting for this age group. The book will be used by both parents and children and uses examples and images from across the world

It should be a glossy paper cover probably 10 x 8 inches. This size will help with the activity pages
