Marty Kelley

Marty Kelley has been a second grade teacher, a baker, a cartoonist, an animator, and a drummer in a heavy metal band, but by far his favorite job has been writing and illustrating seven children’s books. His picture book, Twelve Terrible Things, received a star in School Library Journal and a glowing review in The New York Times by none other than Lemony Snickett. Author Christopher Moore (Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff) called it, “An inspired work of dark humor.” Visit
