The Curiosities

‘Winning and wondrous, this picture book is a compelling appreciation of neurodiversity’ Kirkus Reviews, starred reviewWith the Curiosities, a whole world of wonders and possibles awaits . . . Miro wakes one morning to find the world isn’t quite the way he thought it was. When the Curiosities choose Miro as the one they nest on, Miro is led to discover all the marvels waiting in the shadows where no-one else looks. Sometimes though, the Curiosities can make Miro feel alone and invisible in the darkness. But perhaps Miro isn’t as alone as he thinks… A beautiful celebration of disability, diversity and pride in who you are, from one of Australia’s most loved and awarded writers for children. ‘Families and teachers who want to show a window into living with neurodiversity will want to explore this imaginative book’ Youth Services Book Review, US’Readers young and old will be touched by the book’s depths and awakened to a less common, yet infinitely human life experience – not to invoke pity or fear, but to conjure understanding, awe, and interconnectedness’ Booklist
