THE FANTASTIC WORLDS OF TONY DITERLIZZI

New York Times bestselling author and illustrator Tony DiTerlizzi has been creating children's books for nearly two decades. From 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 imbues his stories with a rich imagination. With Holly Black, he created the middle-grade series, The Spiderwick Chronicles, which has sold over 20 million copies, been adapted into a feature film, and has been translated in over thirty countries. He teamed up with Lucasfilm to retell the original Star Wars trilogy as a picture book and his collaboration with celebrated author Mo Willems created the bestselling The Story of Diva & Flea. The Norman Rockwell museum's 20-year retrospective of DiTerlizzi's artwork, "Never Abandon Imagination", broke attendance records. His latest, a Christmas-themed story titled The Broken Ornament, is Tony's first picture book in 12 years. He has been featured in Time magazine, USA Today, CNN, PBS, the BBC and The Today Show.
