Biographical Sketch

Born in 1947, David Adler has left a marked impression on the field of children's literature ever since the publishing of his first book in 1976. Educated at Queens College of the City University of New York and New York University (completing his MBA in 1971), Adler began as a math teacher until 1977 when he took on writing full time. This list of societies Adler belongs to and the awards he has received practically equates the number of books he has written on topics from picture books to riddle books, biographies to adventure series, and library of nonfiction material. Adler's works have been translated into many languages - Swedish, Danish, Dutch, Spanish, Hebrew, Japanese, Chinese, German and Braille - making a global contribution to children's literature.
