I am extremely honored to post a fellow MIDDLE GRADE MINDED author's cover reveal. As much as I want to build suspense, I can't hold it in, because I am absolutely digging this cover. So without further adieu, I give you Robert A. Polk's kick butt cover for his new novel..CHECK IT OUT!

Operation Tree Roper: An Eye Above

 by Robert Polk

Adventures, Anaiah Press


Twelve-year-old Declan Parker was born with only one eye, but all he seems to have trouble seeing in proper perspective is himself.  All he wants is for kids to see him as normal before he starts a new school in the fall. To that end, he sets out to make money helping with his dad’s tree care business.

Unfortunately, when his dad lands in the hospital after a climbing accident, Declan’s surgery hopes are wrecked. His only hope remains in a neighbor girl and her uncle, a wounded army veteran. Can they help him save his dad’s business, or will Declan’s once-courageous drive turn into total despair?

Operation Tree Roper: An Eye Above is a well-crafted story about a strong, dauntless young man who redefines the value of self-reflection. Declan is a character you won’t be able to forget.

Rob and Team! Love this cover. To me, it feels like a book from my childhood and yet done in a very present way. And I mean all of that in the best possible way. Well done and best of luck! Daniel
