About the author (1998)

Edward Packard was born in Huntington, New York in 1931 and is a graduate of Princeton University and Columbia Law School. He conceived of the idea and wrote what became the prototype book for Bantam's classic Choose Your Own Adventure series and wrote many other books for young readers. The six books in his Space Hawks series, dealing with Earth's defense against space aliens, were published in mainland China in 2004 in conjunction with that country's first manned space mission. Packard's nonfiction book about the size and scale of space and time, titled Imagining the Universe, won a Scientific American Young Readers Book Award. His educational math book, Big Numbers, was cited by Newsweek as one of the best children's books of the year. Packard's self-published novel, Notes from the Afterlife, was released in 2013 and his children's picture book, The Good and Bad Dragon, in 2014. The first edition of All It Takes was published in 2011.
