A story about Xelif who is actually a little boy named Felix. Xelif has dyslexia and he learns to overcome his challenges. This is the first Filipino children's book on dyslexia.
ALEXINE SAYS: I'd always see this book in stores but never actually figured out that it had such a relevant topic. I'm glad we've had a chance to read this, I am definite there are children that would love to hear of Xelif's adventures and learn from them too.
ADRIANA SAYS: I used to read backwards too, sometimes. My mom had to remindinding me to read the other way. It must be a common mistake.
