The TeachingBooks Author of the Week this week is Tony DiTerlizzi.
With Halloween approaching, I thought it might be fun to learn more about the inspiration, paper dolls, and thought process behind his Caldecott honor book, The Spider and the Fly.
The links for Further Information are also fun:
- his website is a hoot,
- the Spiderwick fan site is FANcy, and
- there’s even a link to the Spiderwick movie website.
But I think my favorite part for Halloween is DiTerlizzi’s mischievous and ominous laughter found in his two-minute movie.
