Review on 366 Days of Autism

__________

"I have to tell you how much your book means to me. The Melangui is something that has plagued my life and development for as long as I can remember. It wasn't until recent years that I have learned to love this strange entity and accept that it is ok, even healthy at times, to feel it. If I had had a childhood book like it when I was a child, I like to believe that I would have developed in a much more self assured way. I definitely plan to keep it until I one day have children so I can share it. At times it is hard to assure others that they are loved and special, but in your book you explained it so simply and attached beautiful imagery to match the concept that I feel it is a perfect catalyst for others understanding of it."

"I just wanted to tell you how much I like the Melangui!  It is really lovely -- the pictures are so apt and subtle, yet quite powerful.  Your visual language is entirely original, and it's remarkable how you are able to convey mood and sentiment with these images. I especially love the colors.  The book is just great."

An 8 year old's review:
"The main thing I like is how it has different feelings in it. I thought it was really cool, fun and Sara had a lot of fun making it. I like the pictures are neat how they are shapes that form. I think lots of kids would like it. It has lots of pages and colors."

__________

"I love kids books and this one is really unique. The artwork is sophisticated and organic, it offers a surprise on every page. The surprising thing about this book for me as a fan of the artist is just how wonderful the words are. It's really moving, powerful, and as a father it offers a useful message to share with kids."

"It's beautiful and the message is fantastic!"

"I read your book today. It is perfect. Exactly right. It should be in every mental health clinic and counselor's office. I loved the drawings and what you wrote. So uplifting! Thank you for writing it."
