Hidden Hollow Five

Illustration Contest: The Mystery of The Old Coontz Mill by James R. Lewis

We are excited to see the illustrations you have created for book two in the Hidden Hollow Five series! We’ve received a lot of questions on what James is looking for in the illustrations. So James wanted to give you a little direction to help create pictures that he imagined while writing the book. James dreamed that the “Old Coontz Mill” would be on the cover of the book. Some other illustrations he was hoping to get are also listed below. Just use your imaginations and create anything you are thinking about as you read the book. We hope this helps and good luck!!

Warm Regards,

Kim Tozer, Founder

Some ideas of illustrations James was envisioning:

  • Old Mill (pictured below)
  • Inside the mill looking down at the grinding wheel
  • Treehouse
  • Canoes in the distance on a large river
  • Roll top desk
  • Trap door (in the mill)
  • Old vintage bathroom (in the mill)
  • Closet in bathroom with attic scuttle (in the mill)

We appreciate that many kids might not know what an old mill looks like. Below are images to help guide an illustration, still feel encouraged to be creative and draw what you imagine!
