About the Author

Ben Wicks was born in London's East End in 1926. One of Canada's most celebrated cartoonists, and journalists, he was awarded the Order of Canada in 1986. Committed to helping those in need, Ben believed that every child deserved the right to learn to read and write. In 1995, Ben created the Born to Read series. A collection of six practical literacy guides for families and educators. In 1999 he and his wife, Doreen, established the I.Can Foundation which is dedicated to providing poor children around the world with materials and services to enable them to become literate. Ben Wicks passed away in September 2000.
