David Zeltser

David Zeltser is the author of the picture book, Ninja Baby, and the middle grade novel, Lug: Dawn of the Ice Age. Ninja Baby was featured in USA Today and received a starred review from Publishers Weekly, which called it “a funny and pitch-perfect story.” It was illustrated by Caldecott Honor-winning artist Diane Goode and published by Chronicle Books. Lug is a satire about climate change which was praised by Kirkus Reviews, School Library Journal and Al Gore, who called the novel “a great combination of humor and powerful insight.” The sequel to Lug, as well as two picture books, are forthcoming from Lerner Publishing Group.

David emigrated from the former Soviet Union at age five. After graduating from Harvard in physics, he was admitted to vet school to study wildlife medicine, but ultimately came back to his first love—storytelling. David has banded dozens of species of birds, rounded up giraffes with a pickup truck, and helped care for a baby rhino named Emmitt. But by far his wildest experience was the arrival of his daughter (a.k.a. Ninja Baby). David lives with his wife, daughter and their big sweet dog Ella, in Santa Cruz, California. David is also a screenwriter and is helping the Santa Cruz Young Writers Program to create a nonprofit tutoring center for underserved kids.
