Publishers and agents take note:
John Perritano is alive and well and writing up a storm. He has written a number of non-fiction books for children, including those for Time for Kids, National Geographic, Scholastic, among others. He specializes in history, sports, and science, and has helped write several adult books including those on World War II for Time/Life. But that's not all. John is also the proud father of "Kid Squad Saves the World," a fast-paced mystery/sci-fi series for middle school students. In addition, he has spent more years than he cares to admit as a newspaper reporter (remember them?) and editor, winning a number of journalism awards.
