CLARA TÖRNVALL‘S Ordinary People – The Autist’s Guide to the Galaxy is one of IBBY Sweden’s nominees for Outstanding Books for Young People with Disabilities.

THE MOTIVATION GOES as follows: “Clara Törnvall makes a shift in perspective and questions what is really “normal”. With this funny, insightful and straightforward book, she points the way to a better, more inclusive world. The feeling that all people are odd in their own way is reinforced by illustrator Anneli Furmark’s blossoming people who tentatively meet, try to communicate or sink into themselves. Literature that is strong and vulnerable at the same time.”
