'A beautifully written book that's changing perceptions of autism all over the world' - Alistair Burt, Minister of State for Foreign Office and MP for NE Bedfordshire
'When people think your autistic child is having a tantrum, just show them this book! An easy way to educate those around your child' - Alison White, Autism Parent, Canada
Taryn and Jake are best friends who have lots of similarities and lots of differences. One of the differences is that Jake has autism and Taryn doesn't, which means they can act differently sometimes. Taryn knows that people with autism are often mistaken for being naughty when it's actually a natural way for their brain to react. Fed up with everyone not understanding, Taryn decides to let the world know why Jake isn't naughty! Join Taryn as she candidly explains her understanding of autism, and why there's always a reason behind everything Jake does.
This distinctively illustrated book is a quick and quirky way to explain to friends and family why children with autism behave the way they do. Unique visuals provide a great sense of what it's truly like to have autism, making this the perfect book for children aged 6 and up to learn about autism.
