I think that Rick Riordan is the world's best author for many reasons. For one, his books have a little bit of everything: magic, adventure, history, and plenty of plot twists. Many of his works have made it onto the New York Times bestseller list. Also, his books are usually 300 to 600 pages long, so you will have a while before you begin to desperately yearn for the next installment. Finally, his books are entertaining for kids and adults alike. These are all reasons why Rick Riordan is the most awesome writer on the planet.
