About the Book

For once, Louis was in the right place at the right time! While he was sitting at his desk in the hall, he smelled gas and knew he had to alert everyone. But the fire alarm was far away, at the other end of the hallway, and getting there would take a lot of effort and hard work.

To reach the alarm, Louis has to ignore some of his ritual behaviors and overcome the anxiety that overpowers him. Can he do it? Can he save the school, even though he's what some people would call "disabled?"

Louis in the Hall is an entirely entertaining and empowering children's storybook about a young boy with Tourette syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder who rises to the challenge and saves his school from disaster. Ideal for elementary school children in or around third grade, it explores these special behavioral needs and reminds readers, young and old, that, just because a person is considered disabled, that doesn't mean he or she is unable to achieve greatness.

Full of fun illustrations and strong sentiments, this title is sure to captivate children's interest and encourage them to embrace and enjoy the diversity of the people around them.

About the Author:

Bonham Richards is a biologist, retired college educator, and author who currently resides in Camarillo, California. Earning his BA and PhD degrees from UCLA, he went on to teach biology at California State University-San Bernardino and the University of Southern California.

As an author, Richards has, thus far, published two works of fiction. His first title, World Without Cats, is a grown-up, speculative novel about a devastating, uniformly fatal disease that threatens to wipe out the common housecat, Felis domesticus.

Richards's second title, Louis in the Hall, caters to a much younger audience and is meant to increase elementary students' awareness and acceptance of kids with special behavioral needs. He was inspired to write this delightful and didactic children's storybook by several Tourette kids he's known.
