Bonham Richards’ “Louis in the Hall”


Author Bonham Richards presents a children’s book entitled, “Louis in the Hall”. The book’s story revolves around a young boy who has Tourette syndrome, which is characterized by multiple involuntary motor movements and vocalizations called tics.

The main character is Louis, a third grader who suffers from Tourette syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder. So as not to disturb the other pupils during class, while all other third graders are busy inside the classrooms, Louis spends much of the school day in the hall instead. 

Most of the time, Louis behaves normally but once in a while he experiences a bout of tics. This has led his teachers to separate him from his classmates. In this book, Bonham Richards aims to make people more aware of children having Tourette syndrome and hopefully change their perspective about such kids and to see them as normal and capable kids just like the others.  

Richards hopes to captivate the hearts and interests of children and hopefully encourage them to value, embrace and understand the diversity surrounding them – people, events and circumstances for them to look beyond what their eyes could see.
