Co-Creator & Writer
Join us today as we celebrate The Odd Squad, the delightful new series from the co-creator of the comic strip Over the Hedge, Austin's own Michael Fry! Nick, the shortest seventh-grader in the history of the world, is forced to join the school's lamest club to be cured of what his guidance counselor calls "peer allergies". What starts off as a reluctant band of hopeless oddballs morphs into an empowered team ready to face whatever middle school throws at them. Illustrated throughout with Michael's original artwork, The Odd Squad promises to please young readers who enjoy the comic underdog stylings of Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
MICHAEL FRY has been a cartoonist/writer/entrepreneur for over 30 years. In addition to The Odd Squad middle grade series of illustrated novels for Disney/Hyperion, Fry has created or co/created four international syndicated comic strips including Over the Hedge which runs in over 150 papers worldwide. Over the Hedge was nominated for Best Comic Strip in 2006 by the National Cartoonist Society Rueben Awards. Fry writes and draws from his studio in the Hill Country near Austin, Texas where he lives with his wife, Kim, their dog, Jack and several shrub-eating cows.
