Hi, I recommend Gerrard T Wilson, The Crazymad Writer of children's stories, because he is like Roald Dahl, J K Rowling, Darren Shan and quite a few others all rolled into one. Check out his website thecrazymadwriter.com and you will see what I mean. he wrote Alice in Wonderland on Top of the World, Horrible Horace, A Christmas
Carol Betwixt, Jimmy, the Glue Factory and Mad Mr Viscous - and a whole lot more.

Avi actually does have a pseudonym, it is Avi! His twin sister had given him that name when they were both only about a year old and after that, it just stuck. Avi doesn't use his real name anymore, the fact is, Avi is the only name he uses. Avi was born in the year 1937, in the city of New York. Avi usually says 'Listen and watch the world around you. Try to understand why things happen. Don't be satisfied with answers others give you. Don't assume that because everyone believes a thing it is right or wrong. Reason things out for yourself. Work to get answers on your own. Understand why you believe things. Finally, write what you honestly feel then learn from the criticism that will always come your way.'
avi.jpgI am Avi woo hoo
I recommended Avi, because I have always liked this author ever since my fourth grade teacher had read our class one of Avis books, Poppy. Avi writes books for adults, children, boys and girls. I, in particular have loved Avis writing. He writes using such detail and in such an intriguing way. Here is an interesting link to a website about the official Avi website, http://www.avi-writer.com/aboutAvi.html. I have no really particular favorite book of Avis but, if I had to pick one, I would have to pick the book Never Mind, by both Avi and Rachel Veil. It is a twin book written by two different authors from two different points of views. It was interesting and definitely original. I personally have read this book 3 times, and I wouldn't mind reading again.

Blume, Judy

Judy Blume has no pseudonym. Judy Blume was born on Febuary, 12, 1938. Now, she is 69 years old! Since her first book Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing was published, more than 75 million copies have been sold! Fudge, the main character of Judy’s book, is now more than 30 years old! She had only one quote, and this is her quote: “My only advice is to stay aware, listen carefully and yell for help if you need it.”

I recommended this author, because I always have liked this author ever since I was a second grader. In addition, her books are always cheerful and funny. Therefore, when I am depressed, I always read her books. This is the link of all books written by her. : http://www.judyblume.com/booklist.html
In addition, this is her website. : http://www.judyblume.com/menu-main.html My favorite book is Double Fudge, because this book hooks me every chapter even though I know what is going to happen.

Blume, Judy

The author I researched on was Judy Blume. I like Judy Blume, because I think that she is a writer that writes upon hr experiences and her children’s experiences, which makes her books all sound very realistic and can be related to. For example, Blubber is written with her own daughter’s experiences, and can be related to by most girls our age. Well, Judy Blume was born in Elizabeth Town in New Jersey and she graduated with a BS in education from NYU, 1961. She has written 22 books and won 99 awards and had her books translated into 20 different languages! She lives with her husband and her writes non-fiction. Her hobbies are going to the movies, theater, reading, dancing needlepoint and baseball. She especially likes the Mets. She writs for both adults and children, and at the moment, she is in her sixties.

This is a link to her website- www.judyblume.com
This is a site about her, and there is a guestbook, photo album, and tons more of other things, including a book list. Judy talks about her books in the site-http://judyblume.com/booklist.html My favorite books that have been written by her are- Here’s to you, Rachel Robinson, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, Are you there God? It’s me, Margaret, Just as long as we’re together, Otherwise known as Sheila the Great, and Blubber. The one I like best out of these is, are you there God? It’s me, Margaret. I like this book because it is about a girl who wants to fit in with her classmates even though she is not developing as fast as the other girls in her new school in sixth grade.
Margaret handles it all in her own, funny way. I will definitely read this book again, even though I won’t recommend it to boys because there is a lot of girl talk in it that boys may find disturbing. But, hey, if any girl wants to read it, go ahead! I bet you will understand what Margaret is trying to tell God, if you think about it.



Cameron, Ann

My author is on Ann Cameron. She uses her real name while writing. Ann Cameron was born in Rice Lake, Wisconsin in 1943 in the middle of an October blizzard. She was smart, a good student and also very popular. “We spent lots of time outside, skiing, hiking, biking and fishing. Their world seemed to us almost separate from the world of adults.” She think the independence we enjoyed is disappearing from the life of American children today. She wants them to experience it through my books. There was no TV in our town until when Ann Cameron was nine years old. Therefore she listened to stories on the radio. The best thing about them was they could imagine all the characters and the places in her own mind. Radios before the invention of transistors were enormous; so she believed the voices I Heard came from inside the radio, where the people who spoke were living. Frances Foster has been the editor of all my books beginning with The Seed, published in 1974. She and I have worked together all those years, and she has become a dear friend. She trust her opinion of my work. I think this author is creative and also she writes in a special style. This is why I recommend this author.

Christie, Agatha


Agatha Christie doesn’t use a pseudonym, but she is known as “The Queen of Crime” for her famous mystery books. In fact, she is the world’s best-known fiction writer of all time. She was born in Torquary, England in September 15, 1890. Her first novel was The Mysterious affairs at Styles. It introduced the character Hercule Poirot, a Belgian detective, who pops up in many books. Another one of her characters was Miss Marple, an old English woman, who also shows up in many books. Some of her books were: And Then There Were None which tells about ten people who are lured to an island and accused of murder. One by one, they start to die. Murder On The Orient Express tells about a train ride Hercule is having when it gets stuck and a murder takes place. I recommended Agatha Christie because I thought her books were really interesting. She never gave a direct answer and made it so every new surprise built more suspense. She wrote the books with a twist ending and when I read them, they blew me away. My personal favorite was And Then There Were None.

Christie, Agatha



Do you want to have your hair stand on end? Are you a person who loves to be held on pins and needles?

Then you must read Agatha Christie. She writes many exciting and suspenseful mysteries. She never lets you know who is the murderer until the very end and makes you always think that someone else did it. One book that I highly recommend is Death On the Nile. The story takes place in Egypt on a boat. There is a couple on the boat. The man in the relationship comes from a family with little money, while his wife is very rich and has made him his beneficiary. The man wants her money and is plotting to kill her. One morning on the boat, they find the rich women dead in her room. The husband was also shot in the leg. No one is sure who killed her.

If you want to know who did it you must read the novel yourself! It is worth it. You will not be able to put down the book!


Colfer, Eoin

Eoin Colfer does not have a pseudonym. He was born on May 14, 1965, and is still alive and healthy.

This is a quote from him: "I will keep writing until people stop reading or I run out of ideas" –Eoin Colfer. I recommend him because I simply love his books (even though I've only read two of his books, I think he is really good. Plus, he is one of those world famous authors that you know are good!).

Roald Dahl was born on September 13, 1916 in Llandaff, Glaymorgan and passed away on November 23, 1990 in Oxford England and was buried in Great Missenden. There is a quote that he said, “Grown-ups are complicated creatures, full of quirks and secrets.” This quote can also be found in the book, that he wrote, Danny the Champion of the World. An interesting fact about him is that while on the job, he supplied oil to customers across Tanganyika, and he encountered black mambas and lions, amongst other wildlife.
I really like this author, and recommend people to read his book, because he has written many great stories. He has written stories based upon his childhood, stories for young children to read and enjoy, and he has made quiz books and cooking books too. For example, in the book Boy Dahl shares his childhood stories. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, and Matilda are all examples of his children’s books, while Roald Dahl’s Cookbook and The Roald Dahl Quiz Book are examples of his quiz and cook books. His writing style is very smooth-going. Therefore, it is very easy to understand the story. Here is a new official web-site which I think you will like very much: http://www.roalddahl.com/ .
