About the Author

Multiple award-winning author Jon Scieszka grew up in Flint, Michigan, the second oldest and the nicest of six boys. Jon went to school at Culver Military Academy in Indiana where he was a Lieutenant; Albion College in Michigan where he studied to be a doctor; and Columbia University in New York, where he received an M.F.A. in fiction. He taught elementary school in New York for ten years in a variety of positions. He is the author of many books for children including the New York Times Best Illustrated Book The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales (illustrated by Lane Smith), the Caldecott Honor book The True Story of the Three Little Pigs (illustrated by Lane Smith), and Math Curse (illustrated by Lane Smith).  In addition to his work as an author, Jon also runs a web-based literacy program called “Guys Read” that is designed to encourage boys, particularly reluctant readers, to get involved with books. In 2008, Jon was named the country’s first National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, a joint effort of the Library of Congress and the Children’s Book Council. During his two-year role as Ambassador, he acted as a spokesperson for children’s literature, speaking to groups of parents, teachers, and children to encourage the importance of reading.

Jon Scieszka is the Author of the book Hey Kid, Want to Buy a Bridge?. He was a teacher at a school in New York, New York. Along with various books he writes magazine articles. Scieszka is not only a teacher and a writer but a lifeguard and a painter. The book begins with Fred, Joe and Sam on top of a building. As they walk towards the other end of the building they discover that the building is not completely finished. Throughout the book the three boys try to save inventions such as the light bulb and the phonography. I think this book is good because it not only discuses inventions from a while ago but it also could lead to students performing math problems. One math problem could be how much material is needed to complete the bridge. This book makes students think but it a fun way.

This book is humorous but doesn't have the same appeal as the earlier ones.

I'm looking forward to reading this book. I've read so many of his other great books that this one has to be good.
