Editorial Reviews


'Zindel is a master at creating and sustaining a mood, and Raptor is no exception.' -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL 'Paul Zinde's graphic stories Raptor and Bats had boys of 10 and over queing to order copies. Although revolting gory, they are well written and extremely fast moving.' -- Publishing News, April 2001 'Not for the fainthearted, Zindel has found a formula that will entice the teen reader.' -- Children's Books in Ireland, Spring 2001

About the Author

Paul Zindel was born on Staten Island, New York, where he spent ten years working as a chemistry teacher before becoming a writer. His first book, The Pigman, was published in 1969 to massive acclaim. He has since written over a dozen more novels and established himself as one of the strongest writers in his field. In 1971 he won the Pulitzer Prize for drama for The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds and, more recently, published an autobiographical account of his formative years, The Pigman and Me. Paul Zindel has two grown-up children, David and Lizabeth, and lives in Montague, New Jersey.
