Children of the Little Might by Peter D'Hollander
Reviewed by Katherine E. Soto
Monty is an unusual character; He is a teen age boy who has been told he has autism. He wants to be normal. To top off all his own problems, Monty wants his dad to not be dead. He decides to wish for things to be different. He wants to be normal, he wants his friend who is in a wheelchair to be able to walk, he wants his Dad to be alive, but instead, when given the chance to make a wish, he wishes up his Paper Girl. That's when the adventure begins.
This book is written from Monty’s point of view. Monty has a different way of seeing the world because he is part of the broad spectrum diagnosed Autism world. The author does an excellent job of staying within Monty’s viewpoint throughout the book. It provides a fascinating look at another person’s viewpoint of the world and their wish to escape what is happening to them. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a good YA adventure to read.
