Open: A Boy's Wayang Adventure
Eva Wong Nava
I would like to recommend this book to be considered for the Red Dot Book Awards because it is a culturally diverse book, set in Singapore, against the backdrop of the Chinese Opera story of The Monkey King's Journey to the West that encourages young readers to be more compassionate to individuals on the autism spectrum. The protagonist, Open/Benjamin Oh, is an autistic boy who loves to draw monkeys and he must finally overcome his personal barriers to become the Monkey King on stage. This book was given a 5-star review by Christian Sia for Readers' Favorite: "Told in a strong first person narrative voice, Open: A Boy's Wayang Adventure is a story that teaches readers the power of determination, the beauty of friendship, and how a boy with Autism Spectrum Disorder could beat the odds to achieve his goal."
