This is a wonderful book for parents of an autistic child and it is also a valuable tool for anyone working with autistic children. It is equally important that other children read it to understand the different challenges a child with autism experiences.
The brilliant illustrations coupled with a lovely story make it a joy to turn each page.
The best books on autism tend to be written by autistic people, or by autism professionals --- people with extensive day-to-day experience of autism over many years. This author is neither, and it shows. The book attempts to provide "understanding" for autistic people, but does not offer the depth, nuance or sophistication required for that task. But it comes across to children as inauthentic because it claims to speak for the autistic child himself, while in reality speaking from the point of view of an adult who wants the best for his godson. Autistic people can and do speak for themselves.
There are better autism-positive books out there, ones that explore the amazing contributions that autistic people have made in our world. For example: http://www.amazon.com/Different-Like-Me-Autism-Heroes/dp/1843108151
The text is easy to read and the illustrations by Dennis Culver are excellent. Children can relate to the other children portrayed in the story because they look realistic. The moral of the Chicken Boy story is very important; "Just take time to get to know me. Maybe you can be a Superhero with me." After reading this book you will be saying, "Bahcaaaaaah!!!" and feeling like a Super Hero yourself.
