Tod is author of the How to Get Rich books and the LOST series, a growing canon of history’s iconic survival stories. It’s his mission — as a writer and a speaker — to convince kids that narrative nonfiction can be every bit as gripping as the best fiction. He believes the world needs more books that educate not by lecturing but by telling stories that are impossible to put down. When writers accomplish that task, they can open the world to kids who thought they didn’t like to read.
LOST books have been finalists for the Dorothy Canfield Fisher award and the Keystone to Reading award. How to Get Rich was a Booklist Best Series Nonfiction for Youth selection. Tod holds an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts and lives in Vermont. Visit him online at http://todolson.com/.
