Button Pusher is a realistic graphic novel about Tyler, a child diagnosed with ADHD. Tyler's brain is different. He has a hard time paying attention in class. He acts out in silly, over-the-top ways. To the adults in his life, Tyler seems like a troublemaker, but he knows that he's not. Tyler is curious and creative. He's the best artist in his grade, and when he can focus, he gets great grades! He doesn't want to cause trouble, but sometimes he can't control himself. Author/illustrator, Tyler Page, uses his own childhood experiences to explore what it means to grow up with ADHD in a struggling family.
