Reviews

"Invites readers to question assumptions about what young people are capable of, and [Vernick] shows how willing they often are to view the world from a new perspective. An enjoyable and provocative exploration of the clash between "normal" and "different" and how similar the two really are." Kirkus Reviews "Endearing Middle Graders will find the attitudes and experiences of the novel ring very true to life." Middle Grade Mafioso "A fast-paced book with humor, drama, and a keen understanding of the challenges and benefits of autism Short, sweet, fast-moving, and informative, give Remember Dippy a try for its positive look at autism." Shelf-employed "Shirley Vernick takes a familiar story and reworks it into something entertaining, refreshing, and worthwhile. Remember Dippy, her second book, is highly recommended for school, public, and academic libraries that maintain a juvenile collection." Tennessee Libraries "Remember Dippy is full of characters and a summer you won't soon forget." Chris Grabenstein, NYT #1 bestselling author of I Funny "[Vernick] captures an important part of growing up that time when young people first start to see beyond their own perspectives and really understand the people around them." School Library Journal "A sweet, touching tale about learning to look beyond first impressions and outer appearances I couldn't put this little book down." Laurisa White Reyes, author of The Rock of Ivanore
