About the Author
Justin Colón is a children's author and actor. A former boy scout, he spent many summers surrounded by wildlife and being snacked on by every insect imaginable, but he never encountered the illusive Quacken. He lives in Long Island, New York, not far from a lake filled with plenty of perfectly ordinary, well-behaved ducks. As far as he knows, they haven't tried to eat any of the local children.

Pablo Pino was born in August 1981 in Buenos Aries, Argentina. He grew up watching cartoons, playing football, and drawing a lot. These days, he doesn't watch as much TV and only plays football once a week, but still has the joy of painting every day because for the last ten years, he's been working as a professional illustrator for different print media. What he enjoys the most is illustrating books for children and teenagers. In addition to illustrating almost fifty books, Pablo also does character designs and board games and collaborates on designs for schoolbooks and magazines with various worldwide publishing companies. He is self-taught and his illustrations are mostly computer drawn, but he always adds textures that he makes with pencils, crayons, acrylics, and pretty much any material that lets him gets messy like when he was child.
"Legend has it there's a new campfire tale in town, one to thrill and delight generations for ages, and they call it...THE QUACKEN."--Antwan Eady, award-winning author of Nigel and the Moon
"A fun, suspenseful story about a legendary creature who is equal parts eerie and entertaining."--Jessie Sima, New York Times bestselling creator of Not Quite Narwhal
Debut author Colón and Pino (Pumpkin Day at the Zoo) mix broad spoofs of horror tropes...with the silly extravagance and tight pacing of an 11-minute cartoon. And when a gag both comical and literal finally saves Hector, the story proves itself to be all in good fun, resulting in a lighthearted vibe that's nothing to quack at.--Publishers Weekly "4/1/24"
