About The Book

This is a very special children’s book, dedicated to raising awareness and acceptance of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The idea of this book came from my son, who is on the autism spectrum. Often, when he became scared or nervous, he would start calling himself a penguin. As time went on, he started to wear a cape and solve ‘mysteries’ with his stuffed animals. Every time someone would meet him he would say “Hi, my name is Logan, but you can call me “Penguin”. Recognizing the empowerment he felt as his alter ego “Penguin”, I felt his story needed to be told to encourage other “penguins” and super hero kids to embrace their differences and to share these unique and yes Autistic gifts. So sit back, relax, and experience an adventure with us!

Meet Aaron!

Author Aaron LaPedis is not new at writing books. His first award winning book, The Garage Sale Millionaire was published by Wiley. He currently owns a fine art gallery in Colorado with his wife, Sandee. Since then, his focus has changed, when they had their son and found out that he was on the autism spectrum. That drove Aaron to focus on helping out the autism community.
