Author Biography

Author Ted Enik has worked as an illustrator for most of the well-known New York publishing houses, applying his versatility to both original art as well as classic and current children's book characters. Once part of the favored stable of Magic School Bus artists, he is currently beavering away on a bunch of Seuss-inspired history and science books. Visit his website, G. F. Newland, illustrator, has held a long and ponderous chain of odd jobs over the years, and some were quite horrible indeed, so to pass the time, he doodled. Many of these doodles have made their way into books and buttons and bags and posters and T-shirts, published by the likes of Scholastic and Hachette, and Pixel Mouse House, too. His favorite odd jobs to date include being a dad, working at the School of Visual Arts in NYC (where he got his master's in animation, and playing guitar in a power pop band called the (unrepentantly pop) Thigh Highs.
