Description

Can you imagine the most cantankerous book editor alive? Part Voldemort, part Cruella de Vil (if she were a dude), and worse in appearance and odor than a gluttonous farm pig? A man who makes no secret of his love of cheese or his disdain of unworthy authors? That man is Herman Mildew.

Can you imagine the most cantankerous book editor alive? Part Voldemort, part Cruella de Vil (if she were a dude), and worse in appearance and odor than a gluttonous farm pig? A man who makes no secret of his love of cheese or his disdain of unworthy authors? That man is Herman Mildew.

The anthology opens with an invitation to a party, care of this insufferable monster, where more than 80 of the most talented, bestselling and recognizable names in YA and children’s fiction learn that they are suspects in his murder. All must provide alibis in brief first-person entries. The problem is that all of them are liars, all of them are fabulists, and all have something to hide…

A star-studded anthology with a devilish hook, whose proceeds benefit 826nyc: the fabulous literacy non-profit founded by Dave Eggers.

“Go buy this book for your kids. Every kid on the planet needs this book. And the extra bonus is that proceeds from Who Done It? benefit 826nyc, the literacy non-profit founded by Dave Eggers!
—NCBLA Executive Director Mary Brigid Barrett
“With a lively blend of self-incrimination and finger-pointing, Who Done It? will keep readers guessing to the end.
—Shelf Awareness
“Filled with in-jokes and carried to ridiculous extremes by a mammoth stable of YA and children’s authors...clever.
Kirkus Reviews
“The finger-pointing and self-incrimination begin in every form imaginable...David Levithan offers his alibi in verse....Indeed, the pen is being used mightily to drum up support for creative writing; proceeds from sales will benefit Dave Eggers’ (another among the accused) 826 program in New York.
