Kevin Kremer feels very fortunate to have crossed paths with illustrious North Dakotan Harold Schafer several times when he was growing up in Mandan. Later, when Kremer was teaching in Bismarck, Mr. Schafer visited with Kremers fifth graders and answered questions about business, success, Teddy Roosevelt, and Medora. Undoubtedly, Kevins memorable experiences with Harold Schafer influenced his decision to write this book about Teddy. Kevin is the author of ten other childrens books including A Kremer Christmas Miracle, Santas Our Substitute Teacher, The Most Amazing Halloween Ever, and Are You Smarter than a Flying Gator. He has edited and published many other books.
