Book Cover Reveal


Blast off! I’m revealing  the  cover to my exciting NEW book, a humorous space adventure for kids.

Jo-Kin Battles the It by Karen Tyrrell … an illustrated novel

Book 1 of the Super Space Kids Series

Goof ball Josh Atkins aka Jo-Kin wins the Super Space Kid contest alongside nerdy Sam Jones aka Sam-Wich. Their first Super Space Kid mission is to save the galaxy from a deadly alien, called the It. When the It kidnaps Captain Astra, it’s a race against time.

Can Josh save Astra, the galaxy and us all … before it’s too late?

Blast off with Jo-Kin in this hilarious space adventure to empower kids with resilience, team building and brain power skills, illustrated by Trevor Salter, designed by Anthony Puttee.

    Wow, what a catchy name, and almost retro style book cover. Love the colours, can’t wait to buy it for my nephews. Cool.

    Today I’ve been so nervous wondering what everyone will think.
    This book is my precious baby. Thanks for you very kind words xx Karen

  • Cecilia

    You have got to be Jo Kin, Karen— I like it. The art style is both bright and appealing to kids especially boys I suspect. It does have a touch of the retro to it and you have nothing to be nervous about. Well done on another (soon to be) release.

  • Kathryn

    i love it cant wait to see and read the book

  • Peta

    Karen it’s great! Love those curvy elbows! Now, it could just be viewing it on my lil phone screen,but I’m wondering if your name might stand out better if lined in black? It seems not as ‘popping’ as the rest of the cover..but I defer to your and Anthony’s collective wisdom…good luck with it!!
