Peter Bollinger is the illustrator of the Children's Choice Award–winning Myth Men series that became the animated CBS television show Mythic Warriors. He is best known for his superheroes featured in Fleet, Topps, and Image comics, and has designed futuristic sites around the world, including amusement parks and stadiums. Originally from Australia, Peter Bollinger now lives in California with his wife and son. This is the first book he's written for young readers.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2–Young Algernon wants a really scary Halloween costume, so he heads to the dark and spooky attic for inspiration. He considers a ghost, skeleton, mummy, werewolf, vampire, and zombie, but these are just not frightening enough, so he combines all six to create a monster that suits his taste. Each of the creatures is realistically portrayed as a scary attic phantom, and then the child is shown in a simple costume. The computer-generated art is just that, nothing special or outstanding, but it should appeal to the movie-special-effects generation. At first glance, the easy reading level may suggest that this would be a good choice for preschoolers, but the phantom monsters may prove too frightening for them. While not a first choice, the book would be suitable for larger collections serving school-age readers.–Angela J. Reynolds, Annapolis Valley Regional Library, Bridgetown, NS, Canada
