Gold Medal Winner in the Moonbeam Children's Book awards Non-Fiction picture book category

Autistic Planet is a magical world where all trains run exactly to time, where people working in offices have rocking chairs, and where all kids dream of winning the chess World Cup. Join us on a journey to this alternative reality, where being different is ordinary, and being "typical" is unheard of!

Full of colour illustrations and written in child-friendly rhyme, this book is ideal for children aged 6 and over.
