Author Reid Dailey is not just one person but a pseudonym for an author committee comprised of librarians from the Grand Prairie Independent School District. The Read Across the Prairie™ image of Ross the Reader riding backwards on his horse is well known to the students of Grand Prairie. Students began asking for more stories about Ross the Reader, which led to this second book about Ross's adventures in reading.
Illustrator Ross Edgerley had his first work published when he was just six years old, and by age eight he was painting wall murals in elementary schools and churches. A graduate of Booker T. Washington High School for the Visual and Performing Arts in Dallas, Texas, Ross has had award winning sculptures displayed at the Dallas Museum of Art. Ross became involved with Read Across the Prairie™ when he designed the image of the horse and rider that became the trademark for the program. Ross Edgerley was the illustrator for the first book, the Legend of Ross Reader.
