Mike Petrik


MIKE PETRIK is an animator by day and a prolific doodler at night. He fills his sketchbook with pen and ink creatures, then finishes them digitally. When he is not animating, he doodles on grocery lists, old family photos, and forgotten napkins. Mike lives in the sleepy town of Oak Lawn, Illinois, just outside of Chicago, with his wife and three offspring and an epic Family Halloween haunted yard display.

• a Scholastic Book Club selection
“Halloween and haunted-house enthusiasts will delight in this lavishly illustrated, laugh-out-loud picture book about a boy who loves Halloween so much that he tries to celebrate it year-round.” Booklist
“Broadly comic digital illustrations follow the narration closely as the relentlessly Halloween-obsessed protagonist propels the story forward.” Publishers Weekly
“Sibling cooperation, parental recognition of hard work, and Sammy’s stick-to-itiveness give this book a little something extra beyond just a funny Halloween tale. Petrik’s digital illustrations have a Saturday morning-cartoon aesthetic.” Kirkus Reviews
