Acclaimed children’s book creator, Tony DiTerlizzi was born into an artistic household on September 6, 1969. Being the first of three visually adept children, it didn’t take long for his family and friends to realize that he was one strange, but talented lad. At an early age Tony began embracing the whimsical, the wondrous, and the surreal, all of which sparked his wild imagination.

In Summer 2003, Tony and Holly collaborated on the New York Times bestselling Spiderwick Chronicles. This five-book series has been called "vintage Victorian fantasy" by the New York Post and Time Magazine reported that "the books wallow in their dusty Olde Worlde charm." Also receiving starred reviews in Publisher's Weekly and Kirkus, the Spiderwick Chronicles have been translated into 27 languages worldwide.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
