Dan Gutman

I was born in a log cabin in Illinois and used to write by candlelight with a piece of chalk on a shovel. Oh, wait a minute. That was Abraham Lincoln. Actually, I’m a children's book author. I’ve written more than 170 books for kids from kindergarten up to middle school. For the little ones, I write picture books like "Rappy the Raptor," about a rapping raptor named Rappy, who raps. For beginning readers, I write "My Weird School," about some kids who go to a school in which all the grownups are crazy. Thirty-one million copies have been sold. I also write “Wait! WHAT?” a series of biographies that focus on the unusual aspects of people like Albert Einstein, Amelia Earhart, Muhammad Ali, and Teddy Roosevelt. For middle-graders, I write the baseball card adventure series, about a boy who has the power to travel through time using a baseball card like a time machine. He goes on adventures with players like Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Willie Mays, and others. For advanced readers, I write "The Genius Files," "Flashback Four,” “Houdini and Me” and others.
