"The blossoming friendship, which is at the very heart of the book, is beautifully captured in the loose-limbed freedom of the expressive illustrations... It’s a great big hug of a book that promotes kindness and empathy through great storytelling. And it invites readers to be curious and open to differences, just like the boy in the story."

"What a kind, beautiful book.  The Boy Who Loves to Lick the Wind addresses autism with tact, wit and positivity. Recommended for anyone directly affected by autism – and for everyone else too." David Mitchell author, and translator of The Reason I Jump (now an award-winning feature film) 

"Beautifully illustrated...will help other children to be more understanding and accepting of autism." Temple Grandin, author of Thinking in Pictures 

"This book should be on every library shelf and in every classroom." Elizabeth Laird 

"What a joyous, beautifully written book that so lovingly and accurately describes the world of an autistic boy. I absolutely loved it." Chitra Ramaswamy, author and journalist 

"A wonderful story exploring friendship and the joy that comes from embracing each other's uniqueness.  Sensitively told, with joyful illustrations, this story captures both what it is like to be autistic and what it is like to be friends with someone with autism.  A powerful, heartfelt story which deserves to be read by many, many children.” Catherine Ward, author of The Emerald Forest 

"A joyous slice-of-life story where the lives of two different boys overlap exactly where friendship begins." Bruna de Luca, author of I’m Not Cute, I’m Dangerous

The Bookseller

«

"This beautifully illustrated picture book story follows two boys, one with autism, as they share a seaside adventure of friendship and bonding. Through throwing stones, collecting shells, and licking the wind they find common ground and understanding. Suitable for children aged 4+, this subtle and inclusive story will help teachers discuss empathy and acceptance with EYFS and KS1 classes. Highly recommended."

Tom Tolkien, School Reading List

"This is a touching and empathetic picture story book showing how friendship and acceptance grows through understanding. We hope it will help children and adults understand neuro-diverse traits and behaviour in themselves and others."

Books for Keeps

«

"The story, related and illustrated with great empathy, is an ideal way to introduce neurodivergence to primary school children."

»

Jill Bennett, Red Reading Hub

«

"There’s no shortage of children’s books addressing themes of neurodiversity, but this one is particularly special thanks to the gorgeous illustration and tenderness of the text... The scenes of the two boys splashing around on the beach are so good you can almost feel the wind in your hair and taste the sea spray on your tongue. A story about empathy, acceptance and the joy of the seaside."
