Overview

"I have a superhero inside my head. I call him Chicken Boy" proclaims our hero. What others may see as odd "quirks", a child living with autism explains as all a part of his being a superhero. Told in the first person perspective, Chicken Boy offers a small glimpse into the mind of one child who wants others to understand they shouldn't fear someone simply because that person is a little different.

About the Author

Gregory G. Allen is an author of books geared to adults, but has a huge background in writing and performing for children. His first musical was written and produced for the stage when he was only 14 and went on to write three more while in high school. As an actor in New York, he worked for years with a children's theatre company, joined the stage union by touring in a show that brought well-known children's books to life, and spent two summers touring the country as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. Allen comes from a family of early childhood educators and has always believed children should be exposed to the arts at an early age through books, stage shows, and other creative endeavors geared to them. His personal introduction to autism was through the diagnosis of his godson and does not intend for this book to represent every child with autism as the spectrum is just too large. But it does represent that one boy who is near and dear to the author's heart and perhaps you will see part of a loved one you know. Hopefully it will remind us all to look twice before judging someone who seems different from us.
