Julie Kagawa Julie Kagawa, the New York Times bestselling author of the Iron Fey and Blood of Eden series was born in Sacramento, California. But nothing exciting really happened to her there. So, at the age of nine she and her family moved to Hawaii, which she soon discovered was inhabited by large carnivorous insects, colonies of house geckos, and frequent hurricanes. She spent much of her time in the ocean, when she wasn’t getting chased out of it by reef sharks, jellyfish, and the odd eel.

This was posted 1 month ago. Jason Fry I’m the author of The Jupiter Pirates space-fantasy saga for young adults, published by HarperCollins. The series begins with The Jupiter Pirates: Hunt for the Hydra, then continues with Curse of the Iris. The third novel, The Rise of Earth, is on the way … with more to come. The Jupiter Pirates is part high-seas adventure and part space-age epic — a saga about a solar system on the brink of war and one family caught in the middle of it. It’s technically a middle-grade book (for ages 8 to 12) but I promise older readers will like it too. I was born on June 11, 1945 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I grew up in a family of 9 kids. At least, that is where I lived when I was young.
Frances Hardinge After she had won the 2015 Costa Book of the Year Award for The Lie Tree, an interviewer remarked to Frances Hardinge that not only was it the first children’s book to win the prestigious award since Philip Pullman’s The Amber Spyglass in 2001 but both books showed ‘a willingness to tackle complex moral issues and make them accessible to children’. Hardinge replied that ‘first and foremost, I tell stories’, however, she continued, ‘I tend to assume that young readers can understand quite a lot, so… some of my stories have included things that are actually quite dark’. She admitted also, ‘my books tend to be a bit of an odd mix’ and ‘I can’t quite control the impulse to fiddle and make things more odd’. In The Lie Tree, these dark things include the death by presumed suicide of its teenage heroine Faith’s father, the Reverend Erasmus Sunderly. As the book is set in the Victorian 1860s, this carries the threat of her family’s destitution if such a verdict is reached by the local coroner.

Author & Ilustrator Half the earth's surface is covered by water more than a mile deep, but most of this watery world is a mystery to us. In fact, more people have stood on the surface of the moon than have visited the deepest spot in the ocean. Come along as we travel down, down, down, from the surface to the bottom of the sea. Along the way you can see jellyfish that flash like a neon sign, creatures with teeth so big, they can't close their mouths, and even a squid as long as a bus, which battles to the death with a sperm whale, the largest predator on earth. 40 pages Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2008 Reviews About The Author Barbara Park was best-known as the creator and author of the New York Times bestselling Junie B.

The series was consistently a #1 New York Times bestseller, spending over 180 weeks on the list, and Barbara and her books were profiled in such national outlets as Time, Newsweek, USA Today, The New York Times, and Today. Park died on Friday, November 15, 2013 after fighting ovarian cancer heroically for seven and a half years.
