"Gidwitz proves himself a nimble storyteller as he weaves history, excitement, and multiple narrative threads into a taut, inspired adventure." —Booklist

From dark spells and fairy tales once upon a time to the adventures of three extraordinary children, a magical dog, and a farting dragon in medieval France, Adam Gidwitz crafts entertaining tales that inspire readers from ages 9 to 99 to cringe a bit, cry a little, and laugh a lot.

Travel back in time on a medieval quest as author Adam Gidwitz reads from his newest swashbuckling story The Inquisitor’s Tale and reveals how he was inspired by history to write this captivating adventure.

Adam Gidwitz is an award-winning writer who taught in elementary and high school for eight years. His books include the Newbery honor book The Inquisitor’s Tale, the acclaimed A Tale Dark and Grimm, and its companion books In A Glass Grimmly and The Grimm Conclusion.
