Cam Jansen and the Mystery of the Stolen Corn Popper David A Adler
Mama Played Baseball Picture Book of Anne Frank

David A. Adler was born in New York City. After graduating from New York University, David worked as a math teacher, a writer for a financial newsletter, and the senior editor of books for young readers at a publishing house. In 1977, David stayed home from teaching to care for his newborn son and wrote Cam Jansen and the Mystery of the Stolen Diamonds. He has been writing ever since and is the author of more than 160 books for young readers. “When I write, I try not to worry about each word, or even each sentence or paragraph. For me, books evolve. I rewrite each sentence, each manuscript, many times. And I work with my editors. I look forward to their suggestions, their help in the almost endless rewrite process.”
