David Lubar is no stranger to strangeness, having written all sorts of weirdly funny books such as Beware the Ninja Weenies and Other Warped and Creepy Tales. He has a girl cat with a boy's name, a left-handed guitar, and a small collection of plush arachnids. He sometimes uses a big word like "arachnid" when a small word like "spider" would work just fine, but he's basically a nice guy otherwise. Though he grew up in Morrisotwn, NJ, and now lives in Nazareth, PA, he makes frequent visits to the Looniverse to snatch ideas from Ed and the gang.
Matt Loveridge and strange are like old friends–they go way back. Right from birth there have been strange coincidences in his life. When he was born he weighed 13 pounds, he wears size 13 shoes, and to top it all off he's 13 feet tall. Okay, maybe he's not 13 feet tall, but he is the tallest little brother in his family. Now that he's all grown up, he likes hiking, biking, and drinking milk from the carton. He lives in the mountains of Utah with his wife and kids, and their black dog named Blue.
Ed is a normal kid–until he finds a strange coin, and his life goes from beyond boring to beyond wacky.
