AUTISM THE HAPPY KINGDOM cover image
This story, as the author states in voiceover, is dedicated to the magic of autism. The characters belong to kingdoms and are kings, queens, princes and princesses, yet the children are kept apart through the parental fear of differences. A party is planned, kingdoms accepted and the beauty of it, the sheer art of it, these reluctant families learn how much they are just like each other, only with different sets of problems. The resolution is real, not overworked or preachy, and is as simple as initiating programs to benefit the community or simply sitting on a bench together watching the sunset. I give this screenplay 4.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 12. Reviewed by Linda C., KIDS FIRST!

The Royal Family of Autism must decide to remain in their castle or show everyone there is no need to be afraid of being different.
