Reviews

This sensitive and warm book, complete with insightful text and lovely drawings will surely encourage the peers of kids with Asperger Syndrome (AS) to better understand, empathize with, and accept their Aspie pals. The afterword by Dr Tony Attwood will additionally help the adult readers of the book come to an even deeper awareness that can then lead the way for more meaningful discussion of ASD. -- Liane Holliday Willey, Author of Pretending to be Normal: Living with Asperger's Syndrome
Sometimes the best books are the shortest books. This book does not have many pages but the text is succinct and clearly and accurately describes the characteristics and experiences of girls who have an Autism Spectrum Condition. Each illustration is worth a thousand words and will be perceived as engaging and enjoyable for young children, adolescents and adults. I recommend this short and insightful book to parents, teachers and colleagues as an easy-to-read explanation of ASC in girls, and to the girls themselves to explain their everyday thoughts, emotions and experiences to those who need to know. -- from the foreword by Tony Attwood, Minds and Hearts Clinic, Brisbane
This will be an excellent book for use with Aspie girls, and such books are thin on the ground. There are many more for boys, so this is most welcome. The pictures are lovely too - lots of brightness and colour, and the questions at the end of each short section will prove invaluable for discussion...the pages at the end of the book are very good value for parents using it with their daughter. Altogether, an excellent production. -- HealthyBooks
