Kevin Sylvester

Book featured: "Mucus Mayhem"

Almost Epic Squad Series

Kevin Sylvester will make you laugh - and by doing so, will trick you into learning stuff! Kevin has written and/or illustrated more than thirty books, including The Almost Epic Squad #1: Mucus Mayhem, the Neil Flambé Capers (now at six books), and the MINRs trilogy.

His sci-fi series MINRs is already a bestseller and critical success. MINRS was a Red Maple and MYRCA Honour Book in 2017. MINRS3 – the final book in the series – came out in 2018.

He has a thing for monsters. Gargantua Jr: Defender of Earth is about a mom and her baby Kaiju. Super-Duper Monster Viewer is a picture book that helps you SEE the monsters in front of you.

He also illustrated GREAT (with Glen Gretzky and Lauri Holomis).

Kevin non-fiction titles include Follow Your Money, Follow Your Stuff, Basketballogy, Baseballogy, Sports Hall of Weird and Gold Medal for Weird.
