The Book That Made Me: James Mayhew 17/07/19
My Brother Sammy
Publisher: Sky Pony Press
If only his brother was “normal”. Mum says that Sammy is “special” but the narrator doesn’t want a special brother. He describes a roller coaster of different feelings – loneliness and frustration, sadness and anger, embarrassment and guilt.
With beautiful colour-wash artwork, this picture is a gentle, honest and ultimately positive look at life with autism.
