An engaging story about Lilly, who hides her autism behind a mask until it gets too heavy ... then her dragon escapes!
Lilly is very good at hiding her feelings. She has to protect her puppy from the dragon that lives inside her.
At School she holds up her smile mask and tried hard to be good, but when she comes home tired, the dragon escapes! Only mummy sees that Lilly finds lots of 'normal' things terribly hard.
When Lilly takes her favourite book to school and Zara ruins it, Lilly can't hold her mask up any longer. Who can help Lilly tame the dragon and save the crying puppy?
This engaging story highlights the behaviours of children who are masking autism, but every child will identify wit the inner 'dragon' frustration their attempts to regulate their emotions. A companion volume for 'Being Friends with Bodie Finch', it also comes with a helpful digital handbook for parents and teachers.
This is a great book to use with children and staff alike to create an awareness of additional needs. Wonderful book.
