Giving a father's insight into life with his daughter Maria, aged 12, who has autism, this comic tells the story of their week holiday in the Canary Islands, Spain. Delightful illustrations and dialogue between father and daughter show the day-to-day challenges that people with autism and their carers face, and how Miguel and Maria overcome them.


 


Funny and endearing, this comic helps to show how Maria sees and experiences the world in her own way and that she's unique, just like everyone else.

'Do not be deceived by the apparent simplicity of Gallardo's drawings. Stripped of unneeded decorations these drawings will capture you with their purity. This purity is what this book is about. Pure love between a father and daughter. Love towards family and friends. Love towards life.'


- Hanoch Piven, Illustrator & Educator


 


'Maria and Me is an endearing account of a father's view of his holiday with his daughter with autism. Beautifully illustrated and at times funny, this book provides an alternative way of explaining some of the common traits of autism.'


- Tara Leniston, Actress and mother of a son with autism
