Winner of the 2021 Silver Birch Award and praised by CM: Canadian Review of Materials for its portrayal of “the real-life themes of diversity and perspectives with humour, excitement, sensitivity and warmth,” The Jigsaw Puzzle King sensitively tells the tale of eleven-year-old Warren who is flip-flopping between trying to fit in at a new school and being the protective brother of Bennie, who has Down syndrome.
