“You are my new favorite author. I appreciate you writing about black super heroes because as a young black boy I don’t feel left out. You really helped me enjoy reading more than I ever did. I look forward to you writing more books and a Supadupa Kid 3.”

“Ty is a larger than life character who captivated our audience through his personality and real-life experiences as a children’s book author. He brought a message of hope and inspiration to my young readers and writers, as well as to their families about the value of reading. The response of our families was overwhelmingly positive as they asked for more ways to support their children’s connection to literature.

Principal,
Hamilton Elementary
