About the author:
F. Lewis Stark (aka Big Daddy) brings his unique view of fatherhood, and the world at large, to life in his first book. His tales (and cartoons) from the lighter side of raising a child with autism always spark laughter and discussion. By telling funny and off-beat stories from his life, Big Daddy shows that raising a kid with special needs is not all doom and gloom. To the contrary, it can be quite humorous and inspirational.
Big Daddy spends his days enjoying his kids, doing crossword puzzles, yelling at the TV, and thinking about what to eat for lunch. He has several very nice tattoos which his mother pretends don't exist. Big Daddy is able to survive each day with the help of his long suffering and beautiful wife.
Big Daddy's Tales From the Lighter Side of Raising a Kid With Autism
Never before published hilarity, favorite posts from the blog, marginally helpful tips, poorly drawn cartoons galore, and oodles of original stories from some of Big Daddy's favorite bloggers.
What do elevators, beloved character actor Wilford Brimley, mall maps, flashing yellow traffic lights, the Weather Channel, and Allstate commercials have in common? Not much other than they all are on Griffin's list of favorite hobbies and interests. Over the years, Griffin has embraced these simple pleasures with the same passion some kids reserve for their favorite professional sports teams.
Upon hearing Griffin's diagnosis of autism over a decade ago, his parents felt as though their world ended. They often wished there was a resource available to show, in a lighthearted and humorous way, that having a child with a disability was not all gloom and doom but rather could be a lot of fun.
First with his hilarious blog and now with this book, Griffin's dad has tried to fill this void, and launch a crusade, of sorts, to make the public aware that life doesn't end with a diagnosis of a cognitive disability.
