Knees: The mixed up world of a boy with dyslexia

Knees: The mixed up world of a boy with dyslexia - Vanita Oelschlager, Joe Rossi This book uses simple letter style and design to show the challenges a person with dyslexia experiences. The circumstances are presented as told by a kid. He let us know about his daily life is impacted by this. The pages doesn't look busy or distracting, so kids don't feel overwhelmed.
Art is drawn in pencil and uses light colored paper as a visual aid for kids. The character, Louis The Third reminds me of Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes. I like how he shares with the reader about his life. He doesn't see dyslexia as an obstacle, but as a way to push harder and improve himself.

The only thing I can see as an opportunity for improvement is the story's title. I know it has meaning in the story, but I don't find it that appealing.
