Troy Cummings has been drawing since he was a little kid. His illustrations have appeared in newspapers and magazines, on websites, on frozen-fish-stick packages, and in hospital waiting rooms. His picture books include The Eensy Weensy Spider Freaks Out!, More Bears!, and Giddy-Up, Daddy! The Notebook of Doom is his first early chapter book series. He lives in Indiana with his cat and family.
Praise for Rise of the Balloon Goons "Cranking up the horrorlarity with googly eyed cartoon figures and sight gags on nearly every page, Cummings pitches his nervous but resourceful newcomer into a climactic, all-out battle with an entire army of aggressive, air-stealing bendy balloons." -- Kirkus ReviewsPraise for Day of the Night Crawlers "Written for independent readers, the simple chapter books in this new series are part mystery, part fantasy, and part hilarious. The easy-to-read text, quick action, and exaggerated illustrations will appeal to both boys and girls." -- Language Arts
