If I say 'dyslexic,' do you immediately think of a Nobel Prize winner? Well, maybe you should. Eight-year-old Katie is about to find out that her brilliant, lawyer father can't spell. In fact he's a lot like that boy in her class, Mark Twingle, who has a hard time reading and spelling. Katie starts doing some detective work about dyslexia and finds out that some geniuses in the past were dyslexic. This gives all children a better framework for understanding dyslexia whether they have it or just know someone who does. Dyslexics are pretty special people.
