Media Reviews
As I have indicated, this material is dealt with sensitively and with humour. [...] Each of these [disabilities] is dealt with with a great sense of humanity, while really getting home the important message that it is 'all right to be different'. We definitely need more books of this kind. -- Autumn 2000
