Product Details


More About the Author

Philip Nel likes to read books. He also likes to write books. If you buy his books, then he will be able to write more books. So, please: Give generously. Thank you.

Since you are still reading this, you must be curious to learn more, have a high tolerance for the mundane, or all of the above. So. Here is more. The very first book Philip Nel read all by himself was Dr. Seuss's Green Eggs and Ham. He was three years old, and enjoyed the experience so much that the next thing he did was re-read the book.

In first grade, his favorite book was Jeff Brown's Flat Stanley. He briefly thought he could become two-dimensional, just like Flat Stanley. (He was wrong.) For more details, see Anita Silvey's Everything I Need to Know I Learned from a Children's Book.

Because he cares about the quality of your personal library, he hopes you know that it (the library) would be incomplete without Crockett Johnson's Harold and the Purple Crayon, and Ruth Krauss's The Carrot Seed.

Despite the fact that formal education held little interest for him until he went to college, he managed to become a university professor. I know, I know -- he's as surprised as you are.

If you punch his name into Google, you'll find traces of him all over the web. You'll also find other people named "Philip Nel." And many other items of dubious utility.
