Markus Zusak was born in Australla, Sydney. He lived with his wife and daughter. Zusak is 35 years old. His mother was German. Markas Zusak was the youngest out of the four children.
These are the books he wrote:
The Book Thief
I Am The Messenger
Getting The Girl
When Dogs Cry
Fighting Ruben Wolfe
-2001 Honour Book for Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year (Older Children)
Maykus Zusak got the idea to make the book thief because,he heard stories about Nazi Germany, the bombing of Munich, and Jews being marched through the small German town in which his mother lived.
If I could ask his one question it would be in the book, The Book Thief, why did he pick death to narrate the book.
