Some pretty amazing things have happened to Avi. It all began in 1970, with Things That Sometimes Happen, his first book. His novels include two Newbery Honor Books, Nothing but the Truth and The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, also the winner of the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award. Avi's fifty books tell mysterious, fantastical, and historical tales, and even an animal tale or two, like Poppy (also a Boston Globe-Horn Book Award recipient) and The Christmas Rat. He lives with his family in Denver, Colorado.
