Kirk Scroggs, best-selling author of the “Tales of A Sixth-Grade Muppet” series, will be attending the Grand Rapids Comic-Con.
Kirk’s literary career began with the 2006 hit Dracula Vs. Grampa at the Monster Truck Spectacular.
Nine other books in the “Wiley and Grampa’s Creature Feature” series
for older elementary school readers were released between 2006-2009
including Grampa’s Zombie BBQ (2006), Hair Ball From Outer Space (2007), and Jurassic Grampa (2009).
Kirk switched gears and
started writing a series called “Tales Of A Sixth Grade Muppet,” which
is about a sixth grader who is turned into a Muppet and becomes The
Great Gonzo’s personal assistant. The self-titled debut was unleashed
onto an unsuspecting world in 2011 and was an instant hit. Three books
have since followed with more to come.
An all-new series called “Snoop Troop” will debut when the first book Snoop Troop: It Came From Beneath The Playground hits bookstores everywhere in September.
“Kirk is exactly the
kind of literary guest we desire to bring to the Grand Rapids
Comic-Con,” said co-event coordinator Mark Hodges. “Kirk is extremely
well known in the elementary market and writes very entertaining yet
educational pieces for a young market. We want our show to have an
educational slant, and guests like Kirk definitely help with that.”

Comic-Con will be held on November 21-23, 2014, at the DeltaPlex Arena
