Jack Chabert
About Jack Chabert

Shhh! This news is top secret: Jack Chabert is a pen name for Max Brallier. (Max uses a made-up name instead of his real name so that Orson Eerie won’t come after him, too!)
Max was once a hall monitor at Joshua Eaton Elementary School in Reading, Massachusetts. But today, Max lives in a strange, old apartment building in New York City. His days are spent writing, playing video games, and reading comic books. And at night, he walks the halls, always prepared for the moment when his building will come alive.
Max is the author of more than twenty books for children, including the middle-grade series The Last Kids on Earth and Galactic Hot Dogs.
