Multiple Books by Burt Kempner
“The headmaster in my five-book ‘School of Animal Magic’ series is a silverback gorilla named Professor Quinn. It’s the only name I ever considered, a tribute to a writer and thinker I hold in the highest esteem. When I finished the last page of Ishmael I knew I was not the same person I had been before I started it. That’s rare and special and was repeated one Daniel Quinn book after another.”
– Burt Kempner, author of many wonderful children’s books

About Burt Kempner
“I was born in Brooklyn, New York and moved to Philadelphia when I was four years old. I was not consulted in the matter. I knew from childhood that I wanted to be a writer. I love playing with words, coming up with new combinations and puzzles.
Why did I start writing children’s books? It was because I wasn’t seeing the books I had wanted to read as a kid.
In my books, you won’t be a bit surprised to see an elephant bounce off a trampoline or a sleepy blue whale nearly be the cause of war. That’s just the way things are in a Mild Wild Media book.”
