Casey Scieszka is the author of To Timbuktu: Nine Countries, Two People, One True Story, an illustrated travelogue created with her husband, children's book writer and illustrator Steven Weinberg about the handful of years after college they spent adventuring around Asia and West Africa going yup, all the way to Timbuktu.

Impressively witty, perceptive, and candid… [An] effortless mix of globe-trotting adventure, romance, humor, and expanding self-knowledge. // Publishers Weekly starred review

For teens itching to get out into the world, this is a road map, and Casey and Steven make for eminently pleasant traveling companions. // American Library Association’s Booklist review

Often humorous, and occasionally heartbreaking. // School Library Association

 A breath of fresh air from a sometimes contrived, bloated genre… a must-read for any bright-eyed Gen X or Y (especially couples!) thinking of living and working in a non-Western environment. // Lonely Planet


Her writing can also be found in compilations such as Breakfast on Mars and 826's Who Dunnit as well as in publications like The Huffington Post, 20 Something Reads, and Global Post.
