It's spelled Steele, actually. But looking at this list, it's obvious that people don't read much, so who cares?

Percy Jackson is awesome!

Vote for rick rioradn please and buy his books. Please! Also he is not paying me not say this I live in Australia.

35 Neil Gaiman Neil Gaiman Neil Richard MacKinnon Gaiman is an English author of short fiction, novels, comic books, graphic novels, audio theatre, and films.

Not only has he made theatre and T.V. episodes (which inspired me), he also made a bunch of my favorite books!

36 Roald Dahl Roald Dahl Roald Dahl (13 September 1916 – 23 November 1990) was a British novelist, short story writer, poet, screenwriter, and fighter pilot. His books have sold more than 250 million copies worldwide.

Good but it is a little to childish and some parts of his stories don't have any explanation

He has written a lot but my favorite of his books was Charlie and the chocolate factory

Less than Gaiman by a hair!


37 Adam Gidwitz

Unleashed the true fairy tales in the awesomest way possible!

38 Dav Pilkey

A really nice guy (whom I met), a pen pal and makes silly comics (for both genders but mostly aimed for boys).

39 Daniel Handler

Doesn't want you to read his stories (at least in his text) but I can't help it! They're so good! (I also met him! )

40 Dr. Seuss Dr. Seuss Theodor Seuss Geisel was an American writer and illustrator best known for authoring popular children's books under the pen name Dr. Seuss.

He has written so much but my favorite of his books would either be green eggs and ham or Oh Say Can You Say.

Surprised he isn't higher on the list! I loved growing up with him! Also, I'm 100 years younger than him in days!
