James Patterson holds the Guinness World Record for the most #1 New York Times bestsellers, including Middle School and I Funny. He is a tireless champion of the power of books and reading, exemplified by his new children's book imprint, JIMMY Patterson, whose mission is simple: "We want every kid who finishes a JIMMY Book to say: 'PLEASE GIVE ME ANOTHER BOOK.'" He has donated more than one million books to students and soldiers and has over four hundred Teacher Education Scholarships at twenty-four colleges and universities. He has also donated millions to independent bookstores and school libraries. Patterson invests his proceeds from the sales of JIMMY Patterson Books in pro-reading initiatives.
