Reviews

This book is a beautifully crafted story to help children with PDA, their friends and siblings understand this complex condition. Key points are illustrated through a likeable character, and in an positive way which supports the emotional wellbeing of children with PDA and those around them. -- Ruth Fidler, Education Consultant, complex autism
Super Shamlal uses the unusual but powerful analogy of the hobbling of an Arabic racing camel to explain the restrictions of PDA. A sensitive and perceptive book, it is an excellent introduction to PDA for all those involved. -- Dr Clare Lawrence, Senior Lecturer in Education at Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln
This latest gem from Kay Al-Ghani looks closely at one of the many layers of the onion that is the autism spectrum. She does it with the same respect, thoughtfulness and kindness she exemplified in her other books. Very touching story. -- Brian R. King, MSW
It is amazing how such a simple, captivating children's story can so eloquently describe Pathological Demand Avoidance to both families and teachers, as well as to the child who has PDA. The management strategies for home and school as described in this delightful book will be endorsed by psychologists and really appreciated by parents. -- Tony Attwood, Minds and Hearts Clinic, Brisbane
