About Lynn and Jonathan
Jonathan Greenberg is the Author and Illustrator of Robby the Dyslexic Taxi. Born with dyslexia, Jonathan could not read and write like many other children his age. So instead of acting out, Jonathan used his struggle as a catalyst for creativity by expressing his ideas through art. Having overcome his learning impediment, Jonathan has fallen in love with reading. Robby the Dyslexic Taxi and the Airport Adventure exemplify Jonathan’s passion for writing and illustration. He and his mother and writing partner, Lynn, are already thinking of other stories that complement this book.
Lynn Greenberg is the co-author of Robby the Dyslexic Taxi. Lynn is the happiest wife, mom, and grandma. A very retired attorney who loves to cook, exercise, and read, she has seen how positivity with feelings and differences can allow children to grow into happy, productive adults. During COVID-19, when many families were living together with an abundance of unscheduled free time, Lynn and Jonathan began to work on the concepts and ideas for Robby. As ideas developed, they became increasingly invested in the character, his story, and the impact this endeavor could have on others.
