"Szpirglas is in tune with what fascinates kids and knows how to write in language that will grab them and keep their interest."
"Szpirglas’s writing style is folksy and conversational, engaging young readers with direct questions and instructions."
QUILL & QUIRE
experience as a teacher is evident and realistic."
Jeff Szpirglas has had a varied career. He's shoveled manure, worked in a steelyard (he hails from Hamilton, after all), and even frolicked in the offices at CTV Television and Chirp, chickaDEE, and OWL magazines, where he was the kids' page editor. He is the author of over 20 books for young readers, ranging from early reader chapter books to middle grade horror stories.
He’s also a regular contributor to the horror magazine, Rue Morgue (not for kids, too scary!), and co-wrote a book about film music for horror films.
His manure-shoveling days long behind him, Jeff currently teaches children by day and writes books/fights supervillains by night.
