Synopsis

Strong and Mighty Max by Kristina Gray

Strong and Mighty Max was written by a mother of a child who was born with achondroplasia. Achondroplasia is a rare condition affecting 1 in 25,000 births. Children born with the condition have shorter upper limbs and a slightly larger head than their peers, and have normal intelligence. Strong and Mighty Max is just like any other child his age, apart from his shorter limbs. He explains how the doctor first told his parents that he was born with achondroplasia and what this actually means. This beautifully illustrated book encourages children to celebrate that each one of us is unique and different in some way. It encourages people to not focus on outward appearances, but to look at the heart. We can all dream big, and, just like Max, your life can be a great adventure. Aimed at 0-7 year olds, Strong and Mighty Max will particularly appeal to families affected by rare genetic conditions, and specifically a form of dwarfism. It will also appeal to a religious audience, as woven through Max's delightful story is the Christian value that the heart matters - not just the outward appearance.
