max-champ_large.gifMax is the hero of inclusive children's picture book Max the Champion by Sean Stockdale and Alexandra Strick and illustrated by Ros Asquith.

Max is a little boy who is mad about sport. As he goes about his daily activities, his imagination augments each element of his everyday life into a major sporting scenario. Woven into the book are all sorts of inclusive details - a hearing aid, tactile paving, Makaton images in the classroom, and much more. These are aspects of disability which are rarely seen amongst the pages of children's books.
