[DRUM ROLL...] PRESENTING THE Only JON SCIESZKA!
Jon Scieszka was born in Flint, Michigan on September 8th, 1954. He grew up with a suspicion that the characters from his Dick and Jane reader were not of this planet, has exactly the same birthday as the Virgin Mary and Peter Sellers, along with five brothers.

Published by Starving 1989, The Actual Story has now sold more than a million copieshave been translated into ten languages, also been called a "classic picture book for all ages". Jon and Lane's The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales (1992) took the entire world of the picture book a few steps farther. Goofing with the traditions of fairy tales and even becoming The Sti, a publication
