Many adult authors have successfully branched out into children’s books.   Carl Hiaasen, author of humorous mysteries for adults has written several for children as well: “Hoot” (made into a movie), “Scat” and “Flush”.   Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson have teamed up with the popular “Peter and the Starcatchers” series.   John Patterson’s “Maximum Ride”, “Daniel X” and “Witch and Wizard”  series are  read by both juvenile and adult readers.  Alice Hoffman, author of “Practical Magic” has successfully branched out with young adult fantasies.

John Grisham is the latest author to “cross over” with “Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer”.  A suspense thriller aimed at the 9-12 age range, it features a 13 yr old with a passion for the law who gets caught up in the middle of a murder trial.

Given Grisham’s popularity among adult readers, it’s a sure bet that this book is going to be snatched up by all ages.
