What He Writes

Tedd writes picture books for children from ages three to eight. His first young adult novel, Rat Life, received the Edgar Allen Poe Award for Best Young Adult Novel in 2008.

Why Boys Like Him

Tedd approaches the subjects of body parts and figures of speech from a child's point of view and makes these topics understandable—and hilarious—for them. His award-winning young adult novel, Rat Life, is filled with intrigue and suspense—and a dead body!
