Here is what the CEO had to say about WHEN THINGS GET TOO LOUD :

This is an absolutely incredible book—a seminal work of children's literature.

I was moved to tears—not just because it's a beautiful story and well-written, but also because it helped me as a parent of someone who often finds the world too loud. I was struck by how well this book can be used to help children communicate and find their way back to calm, especially when they don't have the language to express their feelings with words.

The author's rhyming is lovely and makes it easy for kids to follow along and understand what's happening, and the message is so important too: It teaches children that their feelings are okay and valid even if they're different from their peers. Not everyone sees the world in the same way—and that's okay, too!

This book should be in every school worldwide and on every bookshelf! It's truly an invaluable resource for children.

- Louise Jane, CEO The Golden Wizard Book Prize

We are part of a fundraiser!

Spectropolis - Pay it Forward is a charitable project set up with the aim of providing knowledge through book donations. We hope to empower autistic individuals, helping them to understand their condition, whilst finding the strategies which work for their individual strengths and needs.

Funding largely comes from family run events, such as our Spectropolos 100km Walk, and walking Pen Y Fan mountain ten times in a 24 hour period. Last year, we arranged our first #sleepunderthestars camping fundraising adventure - it was incredible to see the amount of families who joined our fundraising efforts. Thank you!

Why create a more inclusive library, school, or bookshelf at home?

"It’s important to show children that some people experience the world differently. To teach openness and acceptance. I hope some children recognize themselves on the page and understand it’s ok to be a little different from others, and for parents and caregivers to realize there is nothing wrong with their child but that there is beauty in neurodiversity. They deserve to be understood and celebrated." Anne Alcott, author and illustrator of When Things Get Too Loud.
