Author Bio

Growing up, Rick Chrustowski (he/him) drew all the time. He drew on the floor of his room, in front of the TV, and at the kitchen table. In second grade, his parents gave him a drawing table, which he has used ever since. When Rick learned how to write stories in third grade, he realized that putting words and pictures together was his favorite art form. Rick has written and illustrated several picture books about the natural world, including Bright Beetle, Big Brown Bat, Turtle Crossing, and My Little Fox. Now he is focused on the not-so-natural world with his creepy but lovable characters in Dino-Zombies! When Rick is not making books, he travels across the country visiting schools and helping kids write and illustrate their own books. He lives and works in Minneapolis, Minnesota.



"The combination of spare text, chunky font, and playfully spooky critters with yellow glowing eyes make this a treat for early readers stimulated by the sugary holiday’s fun." —Publishers Weekly
