Debbi Hudak lives in Putnam County, NY with her husband and two beautiful daughters. She has worked in the school systems for many years helping children with special needs. She credits her daughter, Alicia, who has autism, with teaching her how to help others with this disability. She hopes this book will educate children about autism and therefore they will become more compassionate to their classmates. She hopes that this book will be read in schools on World Autism Awareness Day, April 2nd.
