Summary, etc.:
"Not everybody learns how to read easily or at the same age. Hudson Talbott was one of those kids who found it difficult to read at first. He felt alone and lost in a world of words. Fortunately, his love of stories wouldn't let him give up--he wanted to know what happened next in books. So he gave himself permission to read at his own pace, using familiar words as stepping-stones to guide him into a story. He also learned he wasn't so alone after all--lots of brilliant people were slow readers! Hudson's inspiring story vividly shows the challenges--and the rewards--of being a non-mainstream kind of learner."-- nside cover
