All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome
Ratings: Five stars
Author: Kathy Hoopmann
All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome takes a playful look at Asperger Syndrome, drawing inspiration from the feline world in a way that will strike a chord with all those who are familiar with Asperger Syndrome. Delightful color photographs of cats bring to life familiar characteristics such as sensitive hearing, scampering at the first sign of being stroked and particular eating habits. 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 Asperger Syndrome. This engaging book is an ideal, gentle introduction to the world of Asperger Syndrome.
Autism and the Spectrum Resources, information, books and stories. My number one recommendation for each and everyone is "All Cat's Have Asperger Syndrome". If you own a cat or if you know anyone with Asperger Syndrome, this is a must read book. It's short, it's sweet, and it's true, . . . so purrfectly true!
I am a cat person and have an autistic grandson. I recognize the same personality traits in both my cat and my grandson. I have this book and can highly recommend this cute, funny, and entertaining book that you will want to pass around to your family and friends. Bobbie Jean Peachey, Clipart Mountain Webmaster.

Author: Jodi Picoult
Editorial Review from Booklist
The prolific Picoult crafts a cunning whodunit that explores what it’s like to be not only a teenager with Asperger’s syndrome but also an AS kid accused of murder. Congenitally incapable of interpreting common social behavior or properly expressing his feelings, Jacob Hunt takes refuge in Crime buster reruns and forensic science, often to the chagrin of the local cops. When the badly battered corpse of Jacob’s social-skills tutor, grad student Jess Ogilvie, is finally discovered, police first suspect Jess’ hot-tempered boyfriend. But when TV news footage shows Jess’ body wrapped in Jacob’s favorite quilt, his mother, Emma, reluctantly realizes her son might somehow be involved. After Jacob’s arrest, legal machinations go toe to toe with medical ethics, while Emma never realizes that Jacob’s younger brother, Theo, is struggling to conceal his own dangerous secret, one that will directly impact the outcome of Jacob’s trial. Told from multiple viewpoints, including those of an empathetic detective and an eager but wet-behind-the-ears attorney, the mystery unfolds at a spellbinding pace. But Picoult also does an exceptional job communicating the complexities of Asperger’s syndrome and the challenges confronting AS families. Faithful Picoult fans will whisk this off the shelves, but devoted readers of savvy courtroom dramas should also give it a try. --Carol Haggas
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Ratings: Four stars
Author: Mark Haddon
Editorial Review from Amazon
Mark Haddon's bitterly funny debut novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, is a murder mystery of sorts--one told by an autistic version of Adrian Mole. Fifteen-year-old Christopher John Francis Boone is mathematically gifted and socially hopeless, raised in a working-class home by parents who can barely cope with their child's quirks. He takes everything that he sees (or is told) at face value, and is unable to sort out the strange behavior of his elders and peers.
Late one night, Christopher comes across his neighbor's poodle, Wellington, impaled on a garden fork. Wellington's owner finds him cradling her dead dog in his arms, and has him arrested. After spending a night in jail, Christopher resolves--against the objection of his father and neighbors--to discover just who has murdered Wellington. He is encouraged by Siobhan, a social worker at his school, to write a book about his investigations, and the result--quirkily illustrated, with each chapter given its own prime number--is The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
Haddon's novel is a startling performance. This is the sort of book that could turn condescending, or exploitative, or overly sentimental, or grossly tasteless very easily, but Haddon navigates those dangers with a sureness of touch that is extremely rare among first-time novelists. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is original, clever, and genuinely moving: this one is a must-read. --Jack Illingworth, Amazon.ca
