About the author (2009)

JOHN PERRY says The Book that Eats People wrote itself late one night while he was asleep. Since then, he has made it his mission to warn readers about it. John lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with his family and a library full of dangerous books.

MARK FEARING has studied here and there, and worked there and here. He likes ice cream and he loves to draw. He lives outside of Portland, Oregon, with his family and shelves full of mostly well-behaved books.
