"The Legend of Slappy McDougall: The Boy with the Bugle" is about a kid named Eric Slapton-McDougall III (affectionately nicknamed "Slappy"). His peers view him as "different" because he's shy and keeps to himself. However, after being teased by a bully about the object that he holds most dear to him, everyone soon finds out about Slappy's hidden talent.

Slappy displays resilience by rising to the occasion in order to tranquilize the mean-spirited intent of the bully of Lincoln School. He conquers his inner bully (stage fright) as well. Slappy takes what was intended to be an embarrassing situation and uses it as a platform to display his incredible talent, all while displaying a virtuous sense of humility in triumph. The playground will never be the same and neither will Eric Slapton-McDougall III.

About the Author

Nathaniel Sojourner Turner was born to a widowed mother of two in Englewood, New Jersey. As a child, the way he escaped his challenging upbringing was through reading; some of his favorite books being by Dr. Seuss. He was a gifted student and a multi-sport athlete in school, but as a teenager he began to focus the majority of his time writing music. Now he channels his efforts into getting kids excited about reading and stimulating healthy dialog about religious, social, political, physical, and mental health issues through his work.
