My thoughts on this book…
This is a lower middle-grade book about a boy who copes with autism. And he has a baby skunk that helps him out. What’s not to love about a baby skunk?! (Hmmm? I wonder.)
This is a nice quick read. It gives a nice glimpse into the mind of a child who has to deal with the sensory issues of autism. And he has a lot of little annoyances to navigate, especially when his big sister gets a part in the school play.
Apparently, this is a sequel to another book that I didn’t read. But, I didn’t find that to be a problem. Very cute story.
Did I mention the skunk?
