Blurb (from Goodreads):
Tomas is a little boy who loves trains, trampolines and his dog Flynn. He hates sudden noise, surprises and changes in routine. There are many things about Tomas that make him special and unique, but despite his differences he loves fun and friendship - just like you. This beautifully illustrated, rhyming book is a perfect introduction to autism for young readers aged 2 and over, including children on the autism spectrum and their friends and siblings. In helping the reader get to know Tomas, the book encourages children to recognise what they have in common with him, not just what makes him different.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was an okay story, and it did cover the autism spectrum pretty well – Tomas doesn’t like loud noises, likes to have his day planned out for him, and likes routine.
My four-year-old didn’t really enjoy the story though, and hasn’t asked to hear this one a second time.
