Local Author Teams Up With Polo Park Student

Susan B. is the pseudonym for the author of a children’s book called Ben and Max: An Unlikely Friendship. The book deals with how behavior and words affect others and how people should treat others the way they wish to be treated.

Susan B. is also the neighbor of Polo Park Middle School student Tyler Wold. While working on the book, she asked Tyler to read the book to see if he liked the story. While reading it, he discovered some grammatical mistakes. She was shocked, since she had several adults proofread the book, so she hired Tyler to be one of her proofreaders.

When the book was published, Susan B. acknowledged Tyler’s assistance stating, “A huge thank you to Tyler Wold for proofreading the book with an eagle eye.”
