Product description


"Funny, expertly plotted and written with enormous heart. Readers who enjoyed The Rosie Project will love A Boy Made of Blocks--I did." --Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Project

"This is one of those magical books that makes you forget that you are reading. Keith Stuart switches on a light in your mind and illuminates thoughts and ideas that seem to have always been there but were previously unseen. This is an author who understands fatherhood and boyhood and everything in between. A truly beautiful book." --Matthew Dicks, author of Memoirs of An Imaginary Friend

"A charming and timely tale of learning to connect in the digital age." --Kirkus

"A warm-hearted story about a father struggling to connect with his autistic son. You'll be rooting for Alex as he struggles to relate to his child, eventually finding a way to connect through the unlikeliest of places: the game Minecraft. A Boy Made of Blocks will make you laugh and cry in equal measure; a book you won't soon forget." --Brenda Janowitz, author of The Dinner Party
