About the Author
The elusive and charming N. E. Bode writes from a secret locale beneath a giant, unmarked tree in the middle of Central Park. Some great works born from this hidden perch include The Anybodies, The Nobodies, and The Somebodies. N. E. Bode would also like to mention the books of Julianna Baggott, trusted friend, who writes novels and poetry for grown-ups and lives in the Florida panhandle.

Peter Ferguson is a comic book and editorial artist who just published his first picture book with the Tricycle Press. He is also the illustrator of the young adult novels, "The Anybodies" and "The Nobodies", by N.E. Bode. He lives in Montreal, Canada.
