      Somebodies and Nobodies by Brian Turner, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide. Somebodies and Nobodies: Brian Turner: We use cookies to give you the best possible experience. The plot gets a little muddled in the middle, but soon recovers. Check out the first two books, The Anybodies and The Nobodies. I think I still like the first book best thanks to its extravagant, tongue-in-cheek use of classic children's book motifs and characters. Then again, you'll be happy to run across a great glass elevator in The Somebodies/5(3).
