Reviews

"Adam's progression from an even-tempered and confident child to a withdrawn, frustrated, and often-troubled one is realistically portrayed in Robb's lengthy text and in Piazza's striking pastel illustrations. Equally realistic is the depiction of the long, slow process that leads to Adam's eventual success as a reader. Adam's experience will inspire and encourage many youngsters who find themselves in similar predicaments. Equally important, the book sounds an alarm for educators and parents."--Booklist


"The subject matter is handled with respect for his feelings at every stage of the process, and does not oversimplify or sugarcoat the difficulties of dyslexia."--School Library Journal
