Tony DiTerlizzi

Best-selling author and award-winning illustrator, Tony DiTerlizzi, has been creating books with Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers for over a decade. From his fanciful picture books like, Jimmy Zangwow’s Out-of-this-World Moon Pie Adventure, G is for One Gzonk and The Spider & The Fly (a Caldecott Honor book), to young chapter books like Kenny and The Dragon, Tony imbues his stories with a rich imagination.

Together with Holly Black, his middle-grade series, The Spiderwick Chronicles has sold millions of copies, been adapted into a feature film by Paramount Pictures, and has been translated and distributed in over thirty countries.

His newest title, The Search for WondLa, is a futuristic illustrated novel that debuted on The New York Times Bestseller list the week of its release.
