Pictures of cats in usual and unusual positions help illustrate how the behaviors of people with Asperger's syndrome are similar to those of cats. This work takes a playful look at Asperger Syndrome (AS), drawing inspiration from the feline world in a way that will strike a chord with all those who are familiar with AS. Color photographs bring to life the familiar characteristics of independent cats 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 AS. This engaging book is an ideal, gentle introduction to the world of AS.

A light-hearted and sensitive perspective on an often heavy topic that can provide a little joy and wonder to parents. Told in black and white cute cat photos with adorable one-liners.

This book does an excellent job of explaining the behavorial differences of an Asperger's child, through comparisons to feline behavior. Perfect for helping "normal" children understand those behaviors in their peers who act differently.
