3 More Authors Writing for Children and Adults

After I wrote my first post about authors who write for children and adults, fellow librarian Rory Dougan very kindly recommended some more authors to me. Thank you, Rory! Check out his suggestions below.

Carl Hiaasen

For Adults

Florida police officer Andrew Yancy is the sleuth in Hiaasen's Bad Monkey, a mystery with several unusual characters. (Yancy himself has a human arm in his freezer, for a start.) The next title featuring Yancy is Razor Girl: A Novel. Hiassen's children's books, such as Hoot and the titles below, are also set in Florida.
