Father Farmer has gone away, leaving the farm in a bad state. He did leave a list but the numbers are all jumbled in a mist. Squilly visits the farm and he is different from the other on the farm. He is good with numbers and he knows that in order to fix the farm, he has to put the list back in order. He works on moving the numbers as if it is a race and the rest of the animals watch in shock while he fixes them. Squilly loves working with numbers and, once he fixes them, the farmer's list is complete. The farm is now fixed and things look sunny and bright.

Squilly Fixes the List in the Mist: A Story About Number Sequence by Tashia Beaty is a beautiful story that speaks about autism and how children with autism have special gifts. Squilly's character in the story represents children who have autism and lifts the doubts readers have about disabilities which can hinder their progress. It is a good book to help readers realize that children with autism have special gifts and they can be useful to society in many ways with their individual talents. Tutors and parents can use this story to make their students and kids understand the special gifts of autistic children, especially if they are dealing with them in classrooms, homes, and other places. The Comprehension Questions section at the end of the book is a good tool for children to reflect on what they have read and that makes this storybook beneficial for interactive sessions in classrooms.
