The Hal’s Books Team have a passion to bring autism awareness to a mainstream platform, that’s why you see us use the phrase ‘Awesome About Autism’. Will Hawkes, who has illustrated the book has autism. He told Jude Lennon about some of his own experiences, and Jude as a talented storyteller, has woven his thoughts and experiences into stories that are aimed at 9 to 12 year olds, but also have an appeal to all.
Our Awesome About Autism books hope to bring a better understanding of autism to those that may have friends or classmates with the spectrum condition.
They may well recognise some of the experiences that Hal has to cope with and will then be able to have a better understanding of the situation themselves, making everyone more accepting and less stressed, and generally more Awesome About Autism!
More Awesome About Autism books are planned in the Hal’s Books series that will approach other aspects of autistic spectrum conditions.
We hope you love our first book, Hal and the End Street our second book out in April 2019!
