Heroes of the Maze features people of differing abilities as the heroes. It demonstrates that everyone can have heroic role models to inspire them. Because the book’s characters use their differences and skills to save the day, Tessa Smigla hopes that everyone who reads it will feel inspired by its story and realize that each and every one of us has special value. Heroes of the Maze is illustrated and colorized by people of all abilities.
