The Squirrels Have Gone Nuts

Book #4 of Night Frights
Illustrated by Teo Skaffa

About The Book

In this fourth installment in the spooky and silly series that’s perfect for fans of Goosebumps and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, a boy ignites the wrath of the neighborhood squirrels!

The last thing Dillon Ford should have done was to throw a tennis ball at the squirrel. He didn’t mean to hit it. And he certainly didn’t mean for it to fall out of the tree. But now the squirrels are after him. They have the house surrounded. They’re on the roof, at every window, and coming down the chimney and through the mail slot. Dillon is a boy under siege and one thing is for sure…the squirrels are pretty nutty!

About The Author

Joe McGee loves to write about monsters and magic and other strange, curious, and quirky things. He grew up with his nose in a book and his imagination exploring other worlds. He knew when he was ten years old that one day he would grow up to be an author! He has an MFA in writing for children and young adults from the Vermont College of Fine Arts and an MFA in writing from Rowan University. Joe teaches at Sierra Nevada University’s low-residency MFA program and English at Eastern West Virginia Community and Technical College. He is a former Army officer and lives in the mountains of West Virginia with his wife (also a children’s author), Jessica Rinker. 

About The Illustrator

Teo Skaffa currently lives in Istanbul but is from a village in the Netherlands which you’ve probably never heard of, and for good reason. He loves music, video games, cinema, and swimming. He hates drawing in accurate perspective and room temperature watermelon (cold is fine though, delicious even). Coming from a traditional background, he now focuses on digital illustration and storytelling. Most of his inspiration comes from that short moment when you wake up and don’t quite understand what is happening yet, where he sees brief flashes of images and ideas which he turns into colorful illustrations.
