After art school, DiTerlizzi began a freelance illustration career working for TSR’s Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game. He continued to illustrate in the gaming field for most of the 1990s, working on games such as Planescape, Changeling: The Dreaming, and Magic: The Gathering.
After seven years of work as a gaming and fantasy artist, DiTerlizzi entered the field of creating children’s picture books. With the publication in 2000 of Jimmy Zangwow’s Out-of-this-World Moon Pie Adventure, he fulfilled a childhood dream of writing and illustrating his own book.[citation needed] Jimmy Zangwow was followed the next year by Ted, which received the 2002 Zena Sutherland Award. Ted was followed with his spooky-themed picture book of Mary Howitt’s classic poem The Spider and the Fly, which became a New York Times best-seller,[1] and for which DiTerlizzi was awarded the 2003 Caldecott Honor Medal.
In an effort to bring fantasy to younger readers, DiTerlizzi created the The Spiderwick Chronicles with friend and author, Holly Black. Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing launched the series in 2003. Since then, Spiderwick has been published internationally and translated into over 30 languages.
Holly Black was born in New Jersey in 1971, and during her early years her family lived in a “decrepit Victorian house”. Holly Black graduated with a B.A. in English from The College of New Jersey in 1994. She worked as a production editor on medical journals including The Journal of Pain while studying at Rutgers University. She considered becoming a librarian as a back-up career, but writing drew her away.
