Theodore Taylor was born in North Carolina and began writing at the age of thirteen as a cub reporter for the Portsmouth, Virginia Evening Star. Leaving home at seventeen to join the Washington Daily News as a copy boy, he worked his way toward New York City and became an NBC network sportswriter at the age of nineteen. Mr. Taylor is the author of a dozen books for young readers, among them the award-winning The Cay. He lives in Laguna Beach, California, with his wife, Flora.From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8-- Helen Ogden, 14, and Tuck, her blind Labrador, both introduced in The Trouble with Tuck (Doubleday, 1981), continue their courageous, loving story. Having trained Tuck to use Lady Daisy as his seeing-eye dog, Helen now faces a new challenge when her parents decide to adopt a Korean orphan. When the family meets six-year-old Chok-Do at the airport, they discover that the boy is deaf and mute. While her parents agonize over a decision to send Chok-Do back, Helen takes him on as her project. She trained Tuck; she can train Chok-Do and the family. After difficult adjustments, life-threatening episodes, and the death of Lady Daisy, the family plans a wilderness trip before deciding Chok-Do's fate. During a thunderstorm, Tuck saves both Chok-Do and Helen, and the parents realize they love the boy. Helen and Tuck triumphantly prevail, intrepid and determined; Tuck will get a new seeing-eye dog and everyone will learn sign language. All the details of a deaf-mute are accurate, as are the harrowing, potentially deadly incidents that wouldn't occur if Chok-Do could hear. The dog relationships are very appealing. Helen's character--resolute, brave, open-minded, patient--is an excellent model for readers, and there's enough excitement, carefully spaced, to keep readers interested or to make this a good read-aloud. Not a great book, but a satisfying one. --Ellen Ramsay, Amphitheater High School, Tucson, AZ
