About the author:
Alex Smaniotto, the creator and illustrator of the Buhdeedoo is a young man with Asperger's Syndrome. He was diagnosed at the age of 6, but has never let that diagnosis slow him down. He has used that to his advantage by showing that just because a person is "labeled" as special needs doesn't mean that they can't be a valued and productive member of society. As Alex puts it "I embrace my Asperger's rather than look at it as a disability." These creatures were born in his imagination when he was 10 years old, and come to life inside this book. He is extremely bright and talented, and is currently in high school. Alex is preparing for college and eventually medical school where he hopes to become a neurologist. Alex also has his own You Tube channel under the name of AlexTeh1337GamerDood.

His mom Dorothy is the author of this book and has previously written her own book called "The Burgundy Journey: Using Hope, Humor & Faith To Conquer Adversity. No Matter What". That book tells the story of her struggles with a rare, incurable autoimmune disease that has caused numerous health issues. It also details how Alex was physically attacked by classroom aides in his previous public school and the emotional scars left with him.
