The book cover of Everdark is a scene at sea, where a large whale's tail is protruding out of the water, and a silhouette of a boat is on the bottom right of the cover. A person and an animal in the boat look towards the whale. The cover has a pink and orange tint, making it look like sunset.
Cover of Everdark

Smudge, a character in Everdark by Abi Elphinstone, is dyslexic.

From the author:

It is midnight in Crackledawn. Everyone is waiting for the phoenix to rise up from the forests of Everdark and renew the magic of the Unmapped Kingdoms.

But there is no sign of the phoenix tonight. Something else emerges from Everdark instead: a harpy bent on stealing the Unmapped magic for itself. And so it is up to an eleven-year-old girl called Smudge and an eccentric monkey called Bartholomew to set sail beyond the legendary Northswirl and stop the harpy before it’s too late.
