Über den Autor (2005)

With a B.A. from Middlebury College and a Ph.d. from Rutgers University, Victor Thompson has spent his entire career fighting for high levels of literacy in college English classrooms. The battle began many years ago at the University of Cincinnati and continues today at Thomas Nelson Community College in Hampton, Virginia. Dr. Thompson published a book, Eudora Welty: A Reference Guide and several scholarly articles and book reviews, but his greatest delight is in telling stories. He won an award for his humor column in high school and has been an enthusiastic teller of stories for generations of children, including his own. His stories derive from a life-time of reading the classics of world literature.
