About the Author
Dr. Tom Lathrop's full English translation of Don Quixote was published in 2011 as a Signet Classic. He is the editor of a popular Spanish edition of Don Quijote for students used in colleges and universities nationwide, and he has written award-winning textbooks for first and second year Portuguese, the evolution of Spanish, Spanish phonetics and grammar, and edited French classic editions. Tom is invested as an Officer in the Order of Isabel la Catolica, by the King of Spain and was awarded the Order of Don Quijote by Sigma Delta Pi, the National Spanish Honorary Society. He was a founder member of the Cervantes Society of America. He founded Juan de la Cuesta-Hispanic Monographs (a publishing company named after Cervantes' printer), in order to bring important manuscripts dealing mainly with Spanish Golden Age literature to light. This is his first children's book.
