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 was his first early chapter book series. He lives in Indiana with his cat and family.

SELECT REVIEWS:

  • 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 Reviews
    Praise 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
