Leo and the Octopus

by Isabelle Marinov and Chris Nixon - £6.99  Templar Publishing (2021)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781787416550 | ISBN 10: 1787416550

The world was too bright for Leo. And too loud. "I must be living on the wrong planet," Leo thought.
 
Leo struggles to make sense of the world. He doesn't understand the other children in his class, and they don't seem to understand him. But then one day, Leo meets Maya.
 
Maya is an octopus, and the more Leo learns about her, the more he thinks that perhaps he isn't alone in this world, after all.
 
A dreamy, thoughtful story about a child with Asperger's Syndrome and the special bond he forms with one of the Earth's most astonishing creatures.

"The sensitive descriptions throughout the book of what it is like to have autism are accurate and perceptive on so many levels."
(Professor Tony Attwood, author of Asperger's Syndrome: A Guide for Parents and Professionals)
Recommended for readers aged approx 3-6.
