About the Author

Rob Renzetti is a veteran of TV animation whose work on Cartoon Network's Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends earned him an Emmy. He created the Nickelodeon show My Life as a Teenage Robot, acted as the supervising producer for Disney's Gravity Falls, and served as executive producer on the first two seasons of Disney's Big City Greens, among other projects. Recently, he has published four books for Disney Publishing, including the New York Times #1 Best Seller Gravity Falls: Journal 3 and Onward: Quests of Yore.


"This book is Terrible, Horrible, and a fiendish delight. Rob Renzetti will send a shiver down your spine and give you a phobia of bags that you never will recover from. Open at your own dismay!"--Alex Hirsch, New York Times best-selling author and creator of Gravity Falls

"If Coraline had flown over the rainbow, through the looking glass, and over the garden wall, her escapades might have looked something like The Horrible Bag of Terrible Things. Zenith Maelstrom's quest to rescue his sister, Apogee, from inside a magical medicine bag is filled with horror but also hilarity, and Renzetti's creepy-crawly world of GrahBhag had me squirming with laughter and giggling in fear. It's the kind of madcap, scary adventure story you'll want to revisit again and again, if you dare!"--Dan Poblocki, author of Tales to Keep You Up at Night

"An otherworldly adventure series in the vein of Oz, Alice's Wonderland, and the Brothers Grimm, The Horrible Bag of Terrible Things will, like it did to Zenith Maelstrom and his older sister, Apogee, instantly grab you and pull you into a weird and wondrous world of terror, danger, and sibling rivalry that takes hold and won't let go!"--Craig McCracken, creator of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends and The Powerpuff Girls

"Exhilarating, spooky, and reminiscent of Through the Looking Glass--if everyone and everything in Wonderland was trying to kill Alice."--Shelf Awareness, starred review

"Renzetti's story is fast paced and fully imagined, with completely original creatures and characters."--Kirkus Reviews

"Renzetti weaves an impressive middle grade novel about two feuding siblings that bond over their adventure in an unknown land... Each chapter leaves off on a cliffhanger... making for a suspenseful dark fantasy tale..."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

" inventive and genuinely creepy-crawly read."--Publishers Weekly
