Story about a spastic who's father murders the dog of a neighbour who has run
away with his wife. When the spastic finds out who did it, he becomes scared and
runs away to live with his mother. The spastic is unrealistically intelligent,
and the whole story is pretty much nonesense. The writing is simple in keeping
with the lead character.
Okay, so it's only a kids book, and I guess it will do well at introducing
youngsters to reading, and it will make them think about science a bit (I still
don't think it's very inspiring, though); beyond that it's nothing.
And it won the Whitbread book of the year award...

|He is not unrealistically inteligent.
That is the way Autistic children are.
You write a better book!

|Spastic? No, he's autistic, totally different and the book was very accurate about how he thinks...they are intelligent but completely different from me and you.
I advise you to read up about autistism and THEN read the book again. It's fantastic
