Riassunto: The Granite Toad is a story of overcoming some of the basic fears of youth like change, accepting new people into one's life and standing up for what is right. Two young brothers, Joseph, James, and their cousin Maria are upset when they learn their favorite place to play is going to have a house built there soon. They are upset until they find a small magical stone on the build sight that transports them to a wonderful clubhouse built into a huge mahogany tree. The tree house is at the base of a hill where they play, until they notice a big two-story slave plantation at the top. Meanwhile, the neighbors' cat, Sophie, has also been sneaking through to the past with them and is spotted by many, which wreak havoc on the superstitious slaves. They are discovered by a young black girl named Emma, where they play all day, feeding a big steed and running across the hillside together. Until the young girl's plantation owner, Master Garrett Thurman II discovers she has not been doing her chores. The three children have to rescue Emma from her angry owner and change history. When they return to their own time they ace their history test that they would have failed. If it had not been for the knowledge they gained while in the past. The story begins in 1871 when Emma has first turned eight years old and is going to have a birthday. Eventually she encounters the eerie white cat that the other fieldsmen have been telling everybody about. Emma learns the animal is just a cat and overcomes her fear and superstition.
L'autore: Troy Lane Glover was born in 1965 and raised in the north central part of Kentucky, in a small town called Mt. Washington. He has worked on the bindery side of a local printing company ever since he got out of high school in 1984. Mr. Glover has worked there, for the past twenty-five years, where he learned the ins and outs of the book-making industry. Within that time, he and his wife have raised two handsome boys who now have children of their own. Many a summer evening, they would all sit out in their backyard where Troy would tell them stories that he invented. During the recession of 2008, he was let go from his career as a stitcher operator where he went back to college. This new beginning is where he began committing one of his stories to print. In 2011, he moved to Richmond Virginia to look for a new career in the envelope making industry. From his sociology class of American history, he has finished his story, The Granite Toad, which is a collaboration of life experiences and extensive research.
