A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Benjamin Sherman, a troubled twelve-year-old, has created a world for himself that others call ""mad,"" a world gently and sometimes humorously evoked through letters written by his mother, his psychiatrist, and by Benjamin himself. A first novel. 15,000 first printing.

From School Library Journal:

YA?This brief epistolary novel is a dazzling melange of letters written by at least 10 different characters, including the eponymous H, a stuffed toy belonging to Benjamin, 12, a borderline autistic child sent to summer camp to learn social skills. To the adult world, Benjamin is excessively withdrawn. In fact, he lives in a world in which the stuffed H is named Elliot and is one of many Elliots, aliens who reside in "Elliottown." Besides revealing the bizarre complexity of the boy's imagination, the letters contrast sharply with the well-meaning but uncompromising missives from the adults in the his life. Shepard uses each letter to reveal not only information, but also the character of the writer; even the absence of communications is often revealing. The cumulative effect is to explain subtly Benjamin's condition. Teens should be amused by the delightful irony and the mildly satirical camp scenes, and will enjoy the unusual freedom of being allowed to infer character.?Chip Barnett, Rockbridge Regional Library, Lexington, VA
