Remarkable Remy is a warm and optimistic story that introduces an Autistic character to a young audience. The story helps explain the Autistic brain – how it works a little differently and how unique it is – and how our neurodivergent friends make the world remarkable!
My best friend’s name is Remy. I think Remy is remarkable. Remy is Autistic. That means Remy’s brain works differently to my brain. I love that Remy is different to me, because Remy can teach me new ways to experience the world.
A picture book for both Autistic and non-Autistic readers aged 3 and up, Remarkable Remy illuminates the experiences and strengths of Autistic people, and the joys of having Autistic friends.
