TIMOTHY BLOSSOM – OFFICIALLY BRILLIANT!
by Steve Slavin
A Book For Children Who See The World Differently
Timothy Blossom sees the world differently to other people. Barbara, Timothy’s mother, says this is due to his ‘special wiring', a concept he struggles to understand – as does Bert Blossom, probably the grumpiest dad in East Winslow.
Timothy is twelve years, three months and five days old. He also happens to be the brainiest kid at Highcrest Manor School, but only when it comes to science. When it comes to tying his shoelaces, well… that’s another matter.
‘Officially Brilliant’ is about the year Timothy finds out he has Autism Spectrum Disorder. Or the ‘A-word' as he calls it. It's also about his blossoming friendship with, of all people, Adrian Wilkes; the single most annoying excuse for a human on the entire planet.
How will Timothy cope with the complexities of making friends and becoming a teenager?

"Frank and realistic portray of a 12 years old autistic child, This book will be a great help for families and schools dealing with Autistic children."
"It’s a gem of a book, the title is not over-exaggerating so I rate it 5 stars!"
"I recommend this wonderful tale. Very touching and enjoyable read."
"A little hidden gem ready to be discovered. As I’m on the spectrum, reading this was an absolute rollercoaster of emotions laughing one minute to crying the next as I could imagine my younger self in the exact same situations. Very accurate if you want to educate yourself on autism In general but also specifically on how it manifests in boys. This book is as much for adults as it is for children. I can’t wait to read more work from this author."
