About the Author:

As a lifelong comics fan, Sean O'Reilly dreamed of becoming a comic book creator. In 2004, he realized that dream by creating Arcana Studio. In one short year, O'Reilly took his studio from a one-person operation in his basement to an award-winning comic book publisher with more than 150 graphic novels produced for Harper Collins, Simon & Schuster, Random House, Scholastic, and others.

In once short year, O'Reilly took his studio from a one-person operation in his basement to an award-winning comic book publisher with more than 150 graphic novels produced for Harper Collins, Simon & Schuster, Random House, Scholastic, and others. Within a year, the company won many awards including the Shuster Award for Outstanding Publisher and the Moonbeam Award for top children's graphic novel. O'Reilly also won the Top 40 Under 40 award from the city of Vancouver and authored "The Clockwork Girl" for Top Graphic Novel at Book Expo America in 2009. Currently, O'Reilly is one of the most prolific independent comic book writers in Canada. While showing no signs of slowing down in comics, he now writes screenplays and adapts his creations for the big screen.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2–3—These tales of young monsters are quick, easy-to-read graphic novels with familiar plots (a game of hide-and-seek, the new kid in school). Talbot the werewolf fusses over his hair. Vlad the vampire tends to be a little bossy. Frankie Frankenstein solves problems by bashing through them, and Claude, the Invisible Boy, frets over a pimple before realizing that nobody's going to notice. Layouts are rectilinear and clearly sequential, with widely spaced word balloons that make the dialogue easy to track. Panel art resembles stills from a video game, and although this makes for occasionally distorted-looking limbs, it contributes a cinematic feel to the books. Oddly, even though one character is supposed to be Japanese and two are green-skinned, all the monster children have Caucasian features and hair. Discussion questions and other back matter support classroom use.—Paula Willey, Baltimore County Public Library, Towson, MD
