Check out holzingertoa's Book cover contest…
In diesem Buch finden sich 24 liebevoll verfasste, kindgerecht geschriebene und bunt illustrierte Wichtelgeschichten, die die perfekte Begleitung für die gesamte Vorweihnachtszeit bis hin zum 24. Dezember bieten. Der kleine Wichtel Eldar versüßt einem jeden Kind die lange Wartezeit auf den schönsten Abend im ganzen Jahr. Heiligabend. Eldar ist ein echter Freund von spannenden Abenteuern, lustigen Streichen und herzerwärmenden Geschichten. Mit Eldar ist in der Vorweihnachtszeit garantiert kein Kind allein!
Children (boys and girls) 4-8 years. But the moms will buy the book for the children, so it should catch the eye of the moms as well. Important: The number 24 in the subtitle. It should be instantly clear that this is an advent calender with 24 stories.
Book cover type
So the book is about a little imp. I will attacha picture of an imp for you. Its about the so called "impdoor". An imp is moving into the house of a family with little children to make the waiting game till christmas easier for them. The imp lives behind a little door somewhere in the familys house. So the two things i defenitly need is an imp on the cover and that little door. Maybe you can design an imp by yourself or you can find something on stock. But this two things must appear on the cover. Also it should catch the attention and it should be clear on first look that this is a christmas book. Work with christmas colors.
What to avoid
Dont use exactly the picture i attahced. You can use it as an inspiration and to know what an imp is. Good luck.

Maggie is an amazing designer who worked closely with me, with exceptional insight into what I was looking for. She adjusted my design vision in a very timely basis and I came out with a design that was even better than what I had initially envisioned. Thank you for your amazing work! You nailed it. -J.S.Tomas
