Author Spotlight: Adam Gidwitz

Article Type: 

Adam Gidwitz has written numerous stand-out middle grade fiction titles. His recent stand alone, THE INQUISITOR’S TALE, won the Newbery Honor. While this title reflects the influence of his wife’s medieval studies (that means the history is well researched!), his first series, THE GRIMM BOOKS, delves into the darker and fantastical side of Grimm’s Fairytales. Pulling from lesser known tales, he weaved the most interesting stories into one massive one – creating a trilogy that kids love. His latest endeavor, THE UNICORN RESCUE SOCIETY, follows two kids and one crazy Professor Faustus as they chase down and attempt to save creatures of myth and folklore. Equal parts history and cryptozoology, Gidwitz provides action, mystery, and plenty of imagination. He also lent his talents to the new installment of STAR WARS novels for young readers in SO YOU WANT TO BE A JEDI? Whether you have a boy or a girl, any kid should be able to find some serious fun in the fantastical tales of Adam Gidwitz.
