Adam Gidwitz


USA flag (b.1982)

Adam Gidwitz grew up in Baltimore. Now he lives in Brooklyn and teaches kids large and slightly less large at Saint Ann's School. Adam only writes about what he's experienced personally. So, while all of the strange, hilarious, and frightening things in A TALE DARK AND GRIMM really did happen to Hansel and Gretel, they also happened to Adam. Of course, if you've ever had a childhood, they've probably happened to you, too.

Elf Dog and Owl Head (2023)
M T Anderson
"It is not hyperbole to say that M. T. Anderson is one of the greatest living writers, in any genre and for every age group. It might even be an understatement."
thumb
Pony (2021)
R J Palacio
"A mystery, a frontier adventure, a ghost story: Pony tells the tale of a child ‘with fire in his mind,’ and it will light a fire in yours. R. J. Palacio’s most ambitious book yet, it is as compelling as it is satisfying."

The Anti-Book (2021)
Raphael Simon
"This book will move you, make you laugh, and change the way you think. A mind-bending experience, unlike anything you've ever read before."
