THE FANTASTIC WORLDS OF TONY DITERLIZZI

New York Times bestselling author and illustrator, Tony DiTerlizzi, has been creating books for over a decade. From his fanciful picture books like The Spider & The Fly (a Caldecott Honor book), to chapter books like Kenny and The Dragon and the WondLa trilogy, DiTerlizzi always imbues his stories with a rich imagination.

With Holly Black, he created the middle-grade series, The Spiderwick Chronicles, which has sold millions of copies, been adapted into a feature film, and has been translated in over thirty countries.

Recently, he teamed up with Lucasfilm to retell the original Star Wars trilogy as a picture book and collaborated with Mo Willems for the bestselling chapter book, The Story of Diva & Flea. DiTerlizzi's has been featured in Time magazine, USA Today, CNN, PBS, the BBC and The Today Show.
