Praise For Boy with 17 Senses

"Cleverly told, this original take on a classic tale uses an unconventional setting to explore universal emotions. Hand this to fans of whimsical retellings."

— School Library Journal

"An interesting author’s note explains how Grau grew up with misophonia and wants kids with neurological differences to be able to see themselves in books... the descriptions of synesthesia (and how it might be understood on a planet where all have it) are compelling and memorable."

— Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"This remixed fairy tale, complete with a happy ending, is at once heart-wrenching, clever, and satisfying."

— Booklist
