Author, Tonia Allen Gould, discusses her children’s picture book, Samuel T. Moore of Corte Magore. In the book, she explores the concepts of perseverance, hard work, bullying and finding a place to call home for young readers.

The book tells the story of Sam, a land and sea fiddler crab that finds himself on an island named Corte Magore. Sam must work diligently and ignore mocking from hermit crabs and seagulls and beat the clock on his arch nemesis, The Great Tidal Wave (the bully).

As the author, Gould speaks about breaking free from the difficulties and challenges of her childhood environment.

    Wonderful that one of the messages is that children can overcome adversity and reach goals – but that they must work for it. Bravo Tonia Allen Gould!
