My Mummy is Autistic (£12)

Written and illustrated by my son shortly after his 5th birthday. Chris Packham kindly wrote a foreword for the book, saying within it:
"There is a remarkable tenderness here, between mother and child, an acceptance which is both beautiful and charming and heart-warming. The drawings offer a clarity, the voice of the child a purity, uncomplicated and direct. But what seals its success is the equally honest replies from the adult".
