Search - List of Books by Gordon Korman



Gordon Korman (born October 23, 1963) is a Canadian author, primarily of novels for children and young adults. He lives in Long Island's Great Neck, New York, with his wife and three children.

Korman was born in Montreal, Quebec where he lived until 1970. Korman grew up in Thornhill, Ontario just north of Toronto, Ontario and attended public high school Thornlea Secondary School in Thornhill, Ontario. Korman moved to the United States to attend college at New York University where he studied in the film and film-writing department. Korman received a BA from New York University in 1985; his degree was in Dramatic and Visual Writing with a minor in Motion Picture and Television.

Korman wrote his first book unexpectedly when he was twelve years old. While in 7th grade at German Mills Public School, his 7th grade English writing assignment became the manuscript for Korman's first book This Can't Be Happening at Macdonald Hall, the first book in his Bruno and Boots series. Mr. Hamilton, Korman's 7th grade English teacher, was a track and field coach who suddenly found himself teaching English for the first time. Hamilton required students to write a novel during the semester. Korman was the Scholastic Arrow Book Club monitor for the class; after completing the assignment, he mailed his manuscript to Scholastic. This Can't Be Happening at Macdonald Hall was published by Scholastic Press in 1978 when Korman was only fourteen years old. Before graduating from high school in Thornhill, Ont., Korman wrote and published more than a handful of books, including Beware the Fish, Losing Joe's place and Go Jump in the Pool.

Korman went on to publish many more books, including No Coins Please, Go Jump in the Pool, The War with Mr. Wizzle, and Swindle.
