Steve Metzger is the award-winning author of more than 80 children’s books, including The Way I Act (approved for classroom use by the California Department of Education), Detective Blue (IRA-CBC Children’s Choice List, SLJ starred review), Pluto Visits Earth!

In his newest book, The Bumble Brothers: Crazy for Comics, author Steve Metzger has created a hilarious graphic novel — the first in a three-book series — for 7-11 year olds! With the collaboration of illustrator Brian Schatell, this exuberant read is packed with full-color illustrated panels that clearly show the action, emotions, and ideas of the nine-year-old characters. Middle-grade readers will laugh out loud at the silly situations these clueless twin brothers get themselves into. Parents, teachers, and librarians can use this as an enjoyable tool to engage reluctant readers. Crazy for Comics was chosen as a Gold Standard Selection by the Junior Library Guild.
Steve lives in New York City with his wife and daughter.
