Creepers: The Piano
Edgar J. Hyde Chloe Tyler
Flowerpot Childrens Press
Not much is known about the piano or how it works. Some say it was cursed by a witch centuries ago. Some say it was struck by lightning during a full moon. Others believe it’s all a hoax.
The Houston family can’t believe their luck when they stumble upon a beautiful piano at a low price. Their delight soon turns to horror when the piano comes to life. The melodies that it plays over and over again are eerie and it becomes clear that someone from the past has a message for them.

Chloe Tyler fell in love with art in high school and within a matter of months, it became her entire life. Drawing with charcoals, painting with oils and acrylics, doing portraits, murals, figure drawing, she threw herself into anything she could get her hands on. Chloe attended the University of Georgia and studied fine art and graphic design. It was here that Chloe learned how to take her art from the canvas to the screen. Digital art introduced Chloe to a whole new world of endless creative opportunities. She went on to find her artistic niche in-between the two worlds of digital and fine art. She graduated from college in 2019 with a BFA in fine arts and an emphasis in graphic design, and is now an artist living in Nashville, TN. Chloe is inspired most by color and music—both of which are in abundance in the city of Nashville. She is very excited to see what is in store for her artistic career. Chloe spends her free time painting in her tiny reading-nook-turned-studio in the corner of her room, as well as looking for other people’s dogs to play with (at least until she can get her own).
