Blo has a girlfriend, a colorful imagination, a certain favorite record by Petula Clark that he carries with him everywhere, and a unique perspective on life. Blo also has Down syndrome, but he doesn’t let a little chromosome keep him from living large. This charming story of Blo and his extraordinary group of friends welcomes readers into the distinctly special outlooks and anecdotes of special needs individuals. Based on the author’s uncle with Down syndrome, the delightful illustrations and story offer an entertaining read as well as an educational resource—providing insight into a sometimes misunderstood social group and contributing to the normalization of individuals troubled with the negative connotations of “disability” surrounding them.
