About this author

New York Times bestselling author and illustrator, Tony DiTerlizzi, has been creating books with Simon and Schuster for over a decade. From his fanciful picture books like, "Jimmy Zangwow’s Out-of-this-World Moon Pie Adventure", "Adventure of Meno" (with his wife, Angela) and "The Spider & The Fly" (a Caldecott Honor book), to chapter books like "Kenny and The Dragon" and "The Search for WondLa", Tony always imbues his stories with a rich imagination. His middle-grade series, "The Spiderwick Chronicles" (with Holly Black), has sold millions of copies, been adapted into a feature film, and has been translated in over thirty countries.

Judy Blume + The Breakfast Club + Dante's Inferno = Damned. Its as if Lena Dunham's Hannah (from Girls) went to hell for a holiday. Wickedly good fun.
