Patricia Polacco tells us an emotional story about herself, Trisha, as a young girl in elementary school. She desperately wants to learn to read, but feels “different” and “dumb” as reading is very challenging for her. Trisha's classmates tease her and call her “dummy”, “toad”, and “maggoty old dumbbell”. Luckily, her 5th grade teacher, Mr. Falker, is a very special and compassionate man. He discovers Trisha still does not know how to read and has dyslexia. Alongside Miss Plessy, the reading teacher, he dedicates his time after to school to teaching Trisha how to read.
