This empathetic and heartwarming series of books are written by writers on the autistic spectrum, and are grounded in the real life joys and challenges of autistic children. Pablo will help readers understand that not everyone thinks the same way. 

Pablo uses his ‘magic’ crayons to overcome everyday challenges. He brings the viewer into his ‘art world’ where he portrays how he bravely takes on real world challenges, turning them into fantastic adventures, and communicates unfamiliar feelings by drawing these colourful characters into life. These characters are his imaginary friends, who each carry traits typical to those on the spectrum.
