The engaging book, All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome, is an ideal and gentle way to introduce the often complex world of Asperger Syndrome (AS). In this entertaining and engaging book, the author combines a basic introduction to Asperger Syndrome (AS) with colorful photographs of spirited cats and kittens. Many familiar characteristics of AS, such as social and communication difficulties, special interests, and sensory challenges are vividly illustrated in the photos. In the delightful colorful photos; familiar characteristics such as sensitive hearing, scampering at the first sign of being stroked and particular eating habits are brought to life.
Touching, humorous and insightful, this book evokes the difficulties and joys of raising a child who is different and leaves the reader with a sense of the dignity, individuality and potential of people with AS. The result is an enlightening, imaginative, and sometimes humorous look at AS for readers (and cat lovers) of all ages. (Hardcover; 65 pages.)
