Gidwitz, a self-professed middle-school problem child, "spent my entire middle school career in the principal's office. But he recovered to pursue an education in English literature before teaching second grade for a short time in a New York elementary school.
According to Gidwitz's website, he told his students stories at lunch and recess and story time, and spent his evenings meeting writers and reading bags full of children's books. A San Francisco native, he now lives in Brooklyn, N.Y.
