About the Author
Author Barbara Esham was one of those kids who couldn't resist performing a pressure test on a pudding cup. She has always been a "free association" thinker, finding life far more interesting while in a state of abstract thought. Barbara lives on the East Coast with her three daughters. Together, in Piagetian fashion, they have explored the ideas and theories behind the definitions of intelligence, creativity, learning, and success. Barb researches and writes from her home office, in the spare time available between car pools, homework, and bedtime.

Barbara's book series, The Adventures of Everyday Geniuses, received the 2008 Parents' Choice Awards, were featured on the American Library Association Booklist, and listed on the Reading Rockets Recommended Readings.

Gordon was born in England. He attended Rochdale College of Art, but became an engineer. In 1983 he switched his career to freelance illustrator. Since then he has illustrated many children's books.
