Chris and Andrew are very good friends, but sometimes Chris does things that Andrew doesn't understand.
Chris can hear a fly buzzing when it's a mile away! But he doesn't like bright flashing lights like the ones on Andrew's favourite arcade game. Chris and Andrew have lots of fun together, but at times they laugh at completely different things - it doesn't matter though, because everyone is different, and being different can be rather cool!
Chris and Andrew are here to help people understand the experiences of a child with autism, and how others can help by understanding how they are different, and recognising their many unique talents.
This fully-illustrated book is targeted at boys and girls aged 5+, and also serves as an excellent starting point for family and classroom discussions.
