• Ken Derby is a slightly famous author, monkey trainer, twelve-minute rock star, five-minute TV star, two-minute movie star, fisherman, and former CIA operative (okay . . . not really). When he isn’t teaching or writing, he might be found reading, working out, biking, or rooting for the Denver Broncos. Ken lives in Budapest, Hungary and teaches grade five at the American International School of Budapest. One of his books, The Top 10 Ways to Ruin the First Day of School, is an International Reading Association and Children’s Book Council “Children’s Choices” Honor Book and an Alabama “Children’s Choice Book Award Program” winner. Ken is available for author visits and virtual author visits. Visit Ken at http://www.kenderby.com/ to learn more about him.
