About the Author

Born in 1962 in Denver, Colorado, Scott Nickel works by day at Paws, inc., Jim Davis's famous Garfield studio, and he freelances by night. Burning the midnight oil, Scott has created hundreds of humorous greeting cards and written several children's books, short fiction for Boys' Life magazine, comic strips, and lots of really funny knock-knock jokes. He was raised in southern California, but in 1995 Scott moved to Indiana, where he currently lives with his wife, two sons, six cats, and several sea monkeys. Andy Smith knew he wanted to be an illustrator (if he couldn't be a space adventurer, superhero, or ghost hunter). After graduating from college in 1998, he began working at a handful of New York City animation studios on shows like Courage the Cowardly Dog and Sheep in the Big City. Since then, he has worked as a character designer, freelance illustrator, and taught high school and college art classes. Andy lives in Ipswich, Massachusetts, with his wife Karen.

Reviews

K-Gr 4-Buzz Beaker, boy scientist extraordinaire, has met a challenge that can't be resolved with his microscope. Her name is Sarah Bellum, "Certified girl genius. With an IQ of 187.6." Then her extra-extra credit project-the cosmic copier-backfires and fills the school with over a thousand "copies" of her pet bat, Bobo. Yes, Sarah has made a "boo-boo with Bobo." Only Buzz can save the day. Cartoon cells frame Buzz's world. Subtle color shading brings depth to digitally finished illustrations and draws readers beyond the confines of the frames to enhance both the comic expressions and the action of the text. Zany art; engaging characters with exaggerated, off-center features; and a problem to solve make this great fun for the younger set as well as reluctant readers.-Mary Elam, Forman Elementary School, Plano, TX Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
