"Noah's story of finding acceptance for chronic but invisible illness (here, migraines) goes beyond the canon of "useful books," and lands firmly in the category of warm stories about friendship." - Brian Lies, author and illustrator of the of the New York Times Bestselling Bats series.
About the Author
Judith Klausner is a migrainey land mammal from Somerville, Massachusetts. She channels her experience of invisible disability (and everything else) into her creative endeavors. She often makes art using unusual materials from her surroundings, and plays with her food both recreationally and professionally. When not creating works of art, she likes to throw fancy dress tea parties. Seeing a lack of characters like herself in picture books, Judith set to work contributing to filling this void, and she hopes that Noah will help other disabled folks of all ages feel less isolated.

The story is broadly applicable, not just for migraine sufferers, because it reminds us that everyone can have a bad day, and it's important to be supportive and forgiving and remember the good times too.
"Today is not yesterday" - great line. And really contributes to making this good for smaller children, since the repetition through the story arc works well with little kids. I liked the illustrated feelings, like a headache being a head "full of sea urchins".
