From the Author
Like Nero, I had to work at learning how to find my way. My big brother became a navigator in the Navy, so you can imagine how well he finds his way around. I love exploring with him! Unfortunately, he doesn't live nearby and also has a life to lead--instead of always having time to keep me from getting lost.
My mom used to ask me how I was going to get around later if I didn't learn which way was North, South, East, and West. I said--smart aleck answer #1--I was going to specialize in asking for directions so I would learn ALL the languages. (LOL! Do you have any idea how many languages there are in the world? But that's another story.)
She taught me to use landmarks and my body to find the compass points, the same way Nero does in LOST WITH LEEKS.
"Look at the mountains," she would say. "They are always East."
"Now put the mountains at your Right hand. You are facing North."
"Everything behind you is South. Everything by your Left hand is West."
Of course--smart aleck answer #2--I asked about the one mountain that was North.
She patiently pointed out that the nearest, biggest, mountain range was East.
(Until we moved to another city and--believe it or not--the mountains were on the other side. How annoying!)
She also used to make me give her directions home from the store. I remember her sitting in the driver's seat with the car idling, at the corner of our dead-end dirt road. I was chatting away. She was waiting for me to realize I was supposed to tell her to turn right. I really miss her.
So I started writing about a prince who didn't think he could be a leader, because he couldn't find his way around.
