All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome 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. Delightful colour 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 AS. This engaging book is an ideal, gentle introduction to the world of AS. 'There is a great deal of truth in humour. If you have only just begun to discover why someone with Asperger's syndrome is different, this book will inform and entertain you. The descriptions provide an accurate balance between the qualities and difficulties associated with Asperger's syndrome, while the photographs will make the journey of discovery enjoyable and remarkable.' - Tony Attwood, author of Asperger's Syndrome and The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome

This is a delightful book. It gives you a warm, happy, feeling. A great book to have around for people of all ages. I could help to make the acceptance of others easier.

I have loved this book ever since I first laid my eyes on it as a young teacher. I love the part where it states that people who have asperger syndrome can become lawyers, doctors, etc. Well written and fun!

Very helpful and a good comic relief for a serious subject.

Great, lighthearted way to explore some aspects of Aspergers with children.

A great book and very accessible for children and adults alike. Can be a bit general - obviously not all traits will apply across the spectrum, so you'll need to use judgement and explanation if you are using this book to teach others about a particular person with AS.

An excellent book to help explain Asperger Syndrome. Great resource for professional and parent/carers of these beautiful special needs children.A delight to read and share.

What a beautiful book!! A delightful insight into Aspergers Syndrome for all ages. This book is lovely to look at and fun to read, and has become a favourite of my 8 year old Asperger son!

Fun picture book for children (or anyone of any age!). Wonderful glossy pictures. Easy introduction to some of the many Asperger traits. Well worth purchasing.
