A simple, heartfelt story follows the life of a child with autism through his imaginative journey as he seeks to be accepted, loved, and celebrated for his strengths and abilities. Despite the qualities that make children on the autism spectrum exceptional, they all have hopes, dreams, and feelings of belonging, which all children desire. This book is a powerful reminder that, with a little help from each of us, children with autism can fulfill their dreams.

Review quote

This is an absolutely brilliant book with some of the most gorgeous illustrations I've seen in a children's book in a long time. If you've got a library of picture books or if you've got a youngster on the spectrum, then this is the book you need to have."
- Gavin Bollard, Life with Aspergers blog

About Jillian Ma

Jillian Ma is a resource teacher with the Burnaby School District who has dedicated her life to working with special needs children. She obtained her Bachelor of Education in her hometown of Edmonton, Alberta. Prior to becoming a teacher, Jillian completed a Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in psychology and sociology. She was first exposed to working with special needs children as an educational assistant and later became a Behavior Interventionist before turning her attention to education. Her students are some of the happiest, strongest, and most carefree people she has ever met, and they continuously inspire her to become a better person. In her spare time, she likes to travel, create beautiful memories with her friends and family and lend a helping hand to those in need.

Mimi Chao grew up in the make-believe worlds of Calvin & Hobbes, Studio Ghibli, and Roald Dahl and never quite grew out of them. She believes in maintaining that child-like wonder while integrating the perspective life brings. In 2014, Mimi left a secure career in the corporate world to work towards her idea of meaningful storytelling. She's since illustrated for children's books, designed characters for companies, and created keepsake stories for individuals. Besides drawing, Mimi thoroughly enjoys architecture, technology, and puppies. See more at
