Alexander has just moved to a new town where he is about to uncover all sorts of monsters! He finds an old notebook with the word "DOOM" inscribed on the front cover. The Notebook of Doom, which Alexander now holds, contains top secret information about monsters!

This book is full of humor, engaging black-and-white illlustrations, and of course . . . monsters!

About the Author


Troy Cummings has been drawing since he was a little kid. His illustrations have appeared in newspapers and magazines, on websites, on frozen-fish-stick packages, and in hospital waiting rooms. He has published two picture books so far: THE EENSY WEENSY SPIDER FREAKS OUT! and MORE BEARS! His third picture book, GIDDY-UP, DADDY! is due out in April 2013. THE NOTEBOOK OF DOOM is his first early chapter book series. He lives in Indiana with his cat and family.
