Reviews

A very accessible, positive story explaining Asperger's to young children. Backed by the National Autistic Society, it is an excellent resource for classrooms and libraries. * Bookseller * Groundbreaking picture book explaining Asperger's Syndrome in a simple, gentle, positive way to young children. * The Bookseller * Melanie Walsh's picture book for the very young is visually cartoonish without being patronising. [...] It will appeal to those affected and unaffected by Asperger's [...] It's a wise and cheerful book for anyone who wants to understand the syndrome better. * The Times * ...a book which gently explains Asperger's syndrome to young children. [...] Full of comfort and wisdom - just like Melanie Walsh's Goodbye Grandma * The Herald * [This book] wears its heart on its sleeve [...] It is a good, bright, dauntless book - and does not make the mistake of labouring the detail. * The Observer *
