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 The Notebook of Doom #1: 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... An unusually promising series opener for proto-Goosebumps fans." -- Kirkus Reviews Praise for The Eensy Weensy Spider Freaks Out! "Clever text full of witty asides." -- School Library Journal Praise for More Bears! "[Artwork that is] infused with zaniness of fun." -- School Library Journal
