TostenEnjoy this delightful children's book series, Troy's Amazing Universe, authored by Sharon Tosten.  The main character, her son Troy, has Kabuki syndrome.

Imagine that you're seven years old and the smallest kid in school. On top of that you can't speak very well and so people don't understand you. Your hearing isn't too good either and you learn who people are by smell. Even worse, you get your sounds mixed up and you can't read! Welcome to Troy's world. Trying to get people including mom (who smells of warm muffins) and dad (who smells of leather) to understand him is a difficult task. Troy has to use a mixture of hand signals and objects to let people know exactly what he wants.  The series present the delightful adventures that Troy encounters and the unique way in which he copes with the people, situation, and surroundings.

The books are available on amazon.com.
