I would go for typed text in a heartbeat normally, but the fact that the background is digitally made and the characters were hand drawn makes me wonder if a bit of contrast would be in order.

Despite it being for children. And I am an adult (I keep telling myself).
I stole the book from my mum as she was sorting through books for the library she worked for, my eye having been caught by the macabre pen illustration.
Also of note is the title and typography. I know that if it were me, I would have simply chosen an already existing typeface from the list on adobe, but Roberts made his own to fit with the illustrations. I'll have to keep that in mind, because I don't usually like drawing letterforms but it looks amazing done well.
