Residing with her family in a quaint community in Frederick, Maryland, author LaToya R. Thompson has dedicated the last eighteen years of her teaching career to promoting children’s literacy and instructional development. Exposing children to a diverse collection of quality literature with intellectually rich vocabulary, inclusive of varied reading concepts, is what inspires her to write stories. She enjoys writing about events that happen at school because life as a teacher is always an adventure. She appreciates revealing new lessons that promote critical thinking, and the creative humor in personifying objects and introducing endearing characters through topics relevant to young readers and families.
LaToya shares, “What if you were in a classroom where everything came to life, yet no one else seemed to notice? Something unique is happening to Preston, and it’s posing a small problem. Peculiar events are causing him to see the world in an entirely new way. Escaping to enjoy the adventure is thrilling, but also a little distracting. Discovering where to find help will be his greatest solution to this challenge.”
