Jon Scieszka

Jon Scieszka has been writing books to inspire crazy kids for longer than he can remember. As one third grader correctly put it, he has been writing "since the 1900s!" He is probably best known as the author of "The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs," "The Stinky Cheese Man," "Math Curse" and "Knucklehead." He is the founder of a literacy initiative to connect boys with reading called Guys Read. He was named our nation's first National Ambassador for Young People's Literature by the Library of Congress in 2008. He continues that work to inspire kids to want to be lifelong readers. His new book is "Astro Nuts."
