Sammy doesn't go to school with his older brother; he goes to school on a special bus. They are constantly at cross purposes because Sammy is autistic and does not know how to be a "normal brother." Then one day, Sammy's brother realizes that Sammy's way of doing things may not be so bad.

David lives in Sussex and divides his time between fine art, illustrating and publishing the schools magazine Aquilla.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-The narrator of this picture book longs for a brother who can talk to him, build towers with him, and join his friends at play. His autistic brother Sammy mimics his speech, knocks down his building blocks, and lies alone on the grass staring at the leaves on trees. When the older boy tries doing and seeing things Sammy's way, a special relationship develops between them. Somewhat indistinct watercolor illustrations, many double-paged, enhance the sensitive tone of the story. A good choice for sharing with children who have "special" siblings and for discussions on feelings.
