Kort biografi
David A. Adler is an American children's author. He was born in New York City, New York in 1947. He graduated from Queens College in 1968 with a bachelor's degree in economics and education. For the next nine years, he worked as a mathematics teacher for the New York City Board of Education, while taking classes towards a master's degree in marketing, a degree he was awarded by New York University in 1971. In that same year, a question from his then-three-year-old nephew inspired Adler to write his first story, A Little at a Time, subsequently published by Random House in 1976. Adler's next project, a series of math books, drew on his experience as a math teacher. In 1977, he created his most famous character, Cam Jansen, originally featured in Cam Jansen and the Mystery of the Stolen Diamonds, which was published that year.

Adler married psychologist Renee Hamada in 1973, and their first child, Michael, was born in 1977. By that time Adler had taken a break from teaching and, while his wife continued her work, he stayed home, took care of Michael, and began a full-time writing career.

Adler's son, Michael S. Adler, is now the co-author of several books with his father, including A Picture Book of Sam Adams, A Picture Book of John Hancock, and A Picture Book of James and Dolly Madison. Another son, Edward, was the inspiration for Adler's Andy Russell series, with the events described in the series loosely based on adventures the Adler family had with Edward's enthusiasm and his pets.

As of November 2008, Adler has three sons and two grandsons. He lives in Woodmere, New York.

What an incredible woman!!! Strong, resilient, other directed, and brazen are but a few words to describe the "Moses of the Underground Railway." Harriet Tubman was born, in a shack with a dirt floor, no windows or furniture, she was a lave on a large plantation in Maryland. The sixth of eleven children, she and her family were owned. She vowed no one should own another and spent her life making this belief come true for herself, for others.

Strong willed and wild, beaten often, but never quiting, she fought for what she believed was right. Whipped, she continued to fight for the right to be free. Harriett was born during the time of abolitionists and was fortunate to be assisted by this group when she ran away. When a young girl, she was hit in the head with a strong metal weight. It left her with wound on her forehead that would never heal and forever gave her headaches. She persisted even though this terrible act almost killed her.

Married to John Tubman who was a free man. She dreamed of running away. He would not leave with her, and promised to tell the master of her plans. She left and found the assistance of the Underground Railway. She entered Pennsylvania, a state that banned slavery. Never a selfish woman, she continued to help other slaves gain freedom. Working until she earned enough money to help her mission become a reality. She made approximately 19 trips from the south to the north. It is estimated that she assisted 300 slaves in their dream to be free.

Called a conductor of the Underground Railway, with a bounty on her head, she became more committed to helping others. Tough and resiliant she was a nurse during the Civil War and continued to help the poor and sick after slavery ended.
