Vera McLuckie and the Daydream Club
Vera McLuckie and the Daydream Club, written and illustrated by Scottish duo Jane Evans and Ruth Mutch, follows the adventures of lively young characters who display dyspraxia, dyslexia and autism including Vera McLuckie —who hates school. Mainly because she struggles with stuff the other kids find easy. Oh, and because she keeps getting into trouble for doing what she is really good at… daydreaming.

The book is really good!
I liked the size of the text and the style of font. Vera, Harry and Max were a bit like me! It was very confusing that Harry was a girl with a boys name, why? That confused me! I really enjoyed the story and just wanted to keep reading it. I loved the ‘win a prize’ section at the end, it took me, Mam and Dad to find all of the penguins though!
