Theodore Taylor wrote several award-winning books, including The Cay, which won the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award and was made into a movie. He began his writing career at the age of thirteen and continued on from there-books, articles, scripts-often several projects at once. He passed away in 2006 surrounded by his family, his books, and years of wonderful memories.
Probably the light began to fail for him longbefore the alarming day when he raced after some cats and crashed through the screen door, apparently never seeing it.
Theodore Taylor effectively I read this book with my students when I was a 5th grade teacher in Virginia. However, I don't remember enjoying the book as much then as I did this year. Besides Stew Cat, his only The Cay, written by Theodore Taylor, is a story set in 1942 during World War II. Phillip Enright, the 11 year-old main character, is excited when the Germans invade the small island of Curaçao.
Praise for The Cay: Mr. Taylor has provided an exciting stor. he idea that all humanity would benefit from this special form of color blindness permeates the whole boo. he result is a story with a high ethical purpose but no sermon.

He was making a hut of dried palm fronds. I sat near him under a palm. Now that we were on shore, I again began to think about what had happened to my mother. Somehow, I felt she was safe. I even thought about Henrik van Boven and what a story I would have to tell when I saw him again. I tried not to think about my eyes, sitting there under the palm, listening to Timothy hum as he made the camp
I think this book is a masterpiece.
I think this book is a masterpiece. And I'll tell you why. We think we know the issues which surround racial prejudice so well, that it is difficult to be persuaded to think afresh. Theodore Taylor will make you do that. He takes the plain statement that we are all the same under the skin and illustrates it with a devastatingly simple story. It is 1942, Phillip is twelve years old and lives with his parents on the island of Curacao, off Venezuela, though he is in fact American.
