Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Emily Cook
This title is part of the "Who Wrote That" series. Dennis Abrams now adds British author Anthony Horowitz to this collection of biographies reserved for the "who's who" in the children's book world. No stone is left unturned in this book about Horowitz. As the author of the popular Alex Rider middle-grade teen spy adventures, fans will find themselves entranced with all the detail in this book. Not only do readers have the great privilege of learning more about the series' hero, Rider, but also how Horowitz made his successful transition from television writer to book writer to virtual celebrity in a matter of a few short years. Not that he had not attempted to write children's books before. In fact he had written one children's book a year for at least twenty years before finding success with his first Alex Rider book, Stormbreaker. With the success of this one book, Horowitz's recognition as a new force in the children's book world really took off. Just six short years later an entire series was born and Horowitz received the success he had dreamt of all his life. Readers will find some surprising facts and an engaging history within these pages. Abrams does a remarkable job of drawing the reader in and keeping them hooked from start to finish.

Why write this book. I want my money back. Anthony Horowitz is my favorite author. The Alex Rider series is awesome. His new series Jason Steed is awesome if book one; Fledgling Jason Steed is anythong to go on. (Written under a pen name)
But this book is nothing, You can find all the information on the net.
