About the Author
Richard Fairgray is a writer, artist, and colorist, best known for his work in comic books such as Blastosaurus and Ghost Ghost, and picture books such as Gorillas in Our Midst, My Grandpa Is a Dinosaur, and If I Had an Elephant. As a child he firmly believed he would grow up and eat all the candy he wanted and stay up as late as he liked. By drawing pictures when he wasn't meant to and reading all the things people told him not to, he has made this come true. All Richard needs to be happy is a good table to draw on and a nice scanner and lamp. He now owns multiple tables, scanners, and lamps in New Zealand, USA, and Canada so he can sit down and start working wherever he wakes up.
"Creepy, bizarre, and compelling."--Kirkus Reviews "Fairgray keeps the humor high to soften some genuine spookiness and crafts a cast that readers will want to follow into future volumes."--Booklist "creepy fun tempered by plenty of silliness."--School Library Journal "I loved the humor and weirdness of it. . . . the characters are so confident in this world that you take comfort in how they saunter through it."--A Fuse #8 Production
