Waylen Wants To Jam was written by Jo Meserve Mach and Vera Lynne Stroup-Rentier with photography by Mary Birdsell. This is a non-fiction picture book.

Waylen has autism. He is constantly challenged in how to communicate and participate, but he loves to drum.

He feels like he belongs when he is drumming.  Someday he will be drumming in his school band and maybe he will become a member of a world famous rhythm and blues band.
