From School Library Journal
Grade 3-6-- This volume lives up to the promise of earlier entries in the series. Mathias, six-years-old, was born with cerebral palsy and subsequently diagnosed as almost totally deaf. But he is a happy child, spinning through the garden in his electric wheelchair, miming guitar on a tennis racket, and kneading dough. Readers follow him through examinations, various therapies, riding horseback, ice-skating, etc.; mostly they witness a busy, good-natured child adjusting to his limitations. The simply written, clear text augments and expands the large black-and-white photographs that help readers enter this young boy's world. First published in Sweden, the book has additional features to aid readers' understanding. One section consists of questions frequently asked by children and provides straightforward answers; another suggests activities and offers places to write for more information. The combination of simple, factual material; excellent photographs; appealing text; and attractive, workable design makes this book a welcome addition to material about disabilities. --Constance A.
