A Wonderful Cure for Dyslexia

One of my favorite British authors (and online bud), GP Taylor, loves to visit schools to promote his books. He does it not only for that purpose however. Mr. Taylor really hopes to instill a love of reading in every child. Quite admirable, I would say.

In any case, his new book, The First Escape (The Dopple Ganger Chronicles) is causing a nice stir. I believe one of the characters is named after my cousin, Saskia. Just kidding!!! I thought it was such a coincidence since Saskia is not all that common. Maybe it is in England. Who knows?

Anyway, I'd love for you to read the story of how this book actually helped a young girl deal with dyslexia. Amazing really. Here's the link to a very short but inspirational article. And btw, major movie studios in the US are after this one. Congrats, my friend.

Watch these inspirational videos by GP Taylor. They are pretty awesome.
