"Mummy Man and Waffles is a nonstop thrill, chill, and slimy spill ride full of creepy crawlers and ludicrous laughs!" John Patrick Green, New York Times bestselling author of the InvestiGators series

Get ready for some spooky fun in the first installment of this all-new middle grade series from author Steve Behling, featuring side-splitting illustrations throughout by Robb Mommaerts!

Wen Wyler (aka Waffles) is 11 years old and is forced to spend the summer in Maine with his grandpa, a former Hollywood make-up and special effects artist for classic horror films. Ever seen THE BEAST WITH A THOUSAND TOES, GLAARG! Or its sequel GLAARG! AGAIN!? If so, then you might be familiar with his work.

Wen, a horror movie aficionado, is persuaded to go when he finds out that part of the summer will be spent helping his Grandpa sort through and organize his basement filled with props. Grandpa’s young neighbor, Tanya, has already been corralled into helping and together they dig in until Wen accidentally brings one of the props to life. 

Mummy Man is a good guy, but the other creatures AREN’T so good. It’s up to Wen, Tanya, and Mummy Man (and his pet turtle, Frank) to stop the creatures from turning the town into the nexus for an all-out monster invasion.

About the Author

Just because Steve Behling sleeps with the lights on, doesn’t mean he’s afraid of monsters. Or maybe it does? Anyway. Obsessed with comic books and old horror movies since he was a kid, Steve loves to tell stories. Some of his works include the original middle-grade novel Agent Stitch: A Study in Slime, the Marvel Monsters Unleashed chapter book series, and many others. Steve lives in a top-secret subterranean lair with his wife, two human children, and awesome shelter dog Loomis, who is afraid of monsters, because he is smart. 

Robb Mommaerts is a cartoonist and illustrator who always hoped that his hobby of doodling bizarre creatures in school notebooks would eventually turn into a career. From his basement dungeon, he’s been hopping between the realms of children’s book illustration, comic books, game art, and character design. He’s recently had the opportunity to illustrate the KLAWDE: Evil Alien Warlord Cat series, written by Johnny Marciano and Emily Chenoweth. Before that he has completed eight picture book titles and provided artwork for several top-selling table-top game projects. He lives in Wisconsin with his wife, two kids and a dog.
