MEDIA REVIEWS
Readers are invited into an alternative reality, where being different is ordinary and being "typical" is unheard of. It is full of colour illustrations and written in child-friendly rhyme. Not surprisingly, Autistic Planet was a gold medal winner in the Moonbeam Children's Book awards. -- Autism eye
Written by a mother of a child with autism, this delightful children's storybook addresses some of the issues and differences in autism through the eyes of a little autistic girl who describes the planet where she is from... This book is ideal to help young children to see differences caused by conditions like autism in a positive way. -- Aukids Magazine
This beautifully illustrated book is written in child-friendly rhyme and describes a 'perfect autistic world' that many autistic children as well as their siblings, peers and adults around them, are likely to recognise. The fantasy world that is portrayed may help readers to identify behaviours, likes and dislikes associated with autism, thereby serving as a useful starting point for further conversations about this. -- Youth in Mind
Autistic Planet is a delightful book to read with primary aged children. It is engaging and entertaining, providing a platform for further discussion or simply to read as a charming story about a magical, make believe world. -- Good Autism Practice
Written by Jennifer Elder and illustrated by her and Marc Thomas, it is a colourful portrayal of the alternative reality experienced by those with ASD... A useful addition to any school library. -- Special Children
