Dan Gutman

Dan Gutman was born in a log cabin in Illinois and used to write by candlelight with a piece of chalk on a shovel. Oh, wait a minute. That was Abraham Lincoln. Actually, Dan Gutman grew up in New Jersey and he writes on a laptop. As a boy, Dan didn’t like to read, and his books are most popular with reluctant readers today. You may be familiar with his My Weird School series, The Genius Files, Flashback Four, the baseball card adventure series, or some of his other books for kids. Dan lives in New York City. 

MFOB FEATURED BOOK: My Weirdest School #5: Miss Daisy Is Still Crazy!

The students of Ella Mentry School are in for a surprise. Mr. Cooper is sick, and that means A.J. and the gang are getting a substitute teacher—crazy Miss Daisy! Instead of learning, she wants the kids to eat bonbons all day. And she thinks that germs are out to get her. Will third grade ever be normal again?
