Summary
Henry, a boy on the autism spectrum, has been on the lookout for a friend in his class. His best efforts are often misunderstood, but after an art project mix-up and a Reading Time setback, Henry finds a way to build a friendship in this charming and reassuring picture book.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Henry, a young boy on the autism spectrum, would like a friend. He appreciates people who are quiet, share his sense of orderliness, and won't invade his personal space. Gilly the goldfish is quiet, but she can't really play; Vivian flashes rainbow fingernails in his face, but complains when Henry makes a rainbow of her paints; and Samuel turns Henry's perfectly aligned carpet squares into a disorderly magic carpet. Luckily, Henry notices Katie, who enjoys watching Gilly do fish things, is happy to build a block tower that excludes the triangles Henry can't bear, and loves swinging at the playground with Henry. Bailey's debut picture book allows readers to empathize with a child who, despite overt differences, has needs that are much the same as everyone else's. Song's ink-and-watercolor illustrations depict a multiethnic, play-centered school. The cartoon art includes many familiar classroom details and works well in conveying Henry's emotional frustrations. As the number of diagnosed children on the autistic spectrum increases, so does the need for informative and positive presentations such as this.--Kay Weisman Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This quiet story looks on as Henry, a boy on the autism spectrum, interacts with his classmates in search of a friend. With sensitivity and thoughtfulness, Bailey explores Henry's literalminded, analytical personality and the way it clashes with some of the other children's dispositions. When Henry arranges carpet squares for reading time ("All the edges met and the corners fit perfectly"), his classmate Samuel grabs one, insisting that it is a magic carpet. Henry becomes frustrated-the squares were carefully arranged, he says, and they're "from Rug World. There's a sticker." Artwork by Song (Tea with Oliver) captures Henry and his classmates in graceful, economical strokes. When he's upset, Henry's eyebrows furrow and his fists clench. Soon, though, he's watching Gilly the classroom goldfish; another child, Katie, watches the bowl silently opposite him. "She's shimmery," says Katie. "But she doesn't blink," Henry responds. Young readers will see that Katie is the kind of friend who will give Henry the space and consideration he needs, and they'll feel his relief. Bailey, the author's biography explains, is the mother of a child on the autism spectrum, and her portrayal of what autism might feel like from the inside rings true. Ages 5-8.
