A kid for whom science is easy but friendship is hard.
Winner of the Tofte/Wright Children's Literature Award,
The Reinvention of Edison Thomas has been selected for
The Reinvention of Edison Thomas got a starred review from Library Media Connection:
" * Move over, Joey Pigza! Here comes another exceptional spokesman for people with learning disabilities. . . Because Eddy is such an endearing character who clearly explains his thinking and actions, this book deserves a place on every elementary and middle school shelf. It should be read not only by kids who go to school with an Eddy, but by teachers who teach an Eddy. Because Eddy has allowed us to understand the way he sees the world, readers will have more compassion for people with Asperger's Syndrome. Highly Recommended."
