N. D. Wilson is a classically trained author. He graduated from Logos School, a classical and Christian school much like New Covenant School.Since graduating he has gone on to be the best-selling author of the 100 Cupboards series (Random House), Leepike Ridge (Random House), and Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl (Thomas Nelson). He writes up in the top of the tall skinny house where he lives with the blue-eyed girl he stole from the ocean (and their five young explorers, two tortoises, and one snake). He has adventured for National Geographic Channel, is currently adapting C.S. Lewis' The Great Divorce for the screen, and once--in the fourth grade--split his buddy's arrow while shooting at a mattress from twenty yards.If you are interested in a great read for your child (and you) and seeing what a classical and Christian education can produce, pick up this book ASAP!
