Reviews

This is an interesting combination of fiction and therapy... The device of using a science fiction story, which removes the action just that bit from the "earthling", is a good one, and children should respond very well to it. The style is slightly unusual in that it is aimed very specifically at children with AS. Feelings are discussed freely - necessary given the themes of the book. -- Healthy Books
Baj has real family adventures, confrontations, successes and failures , and the book is positive and full of humour. It could be read by children from 7 upwards and could also be used with older pupils who have special needs. -- The School Librarian

What I particularly like about this book is that it is written as a story, but clearly has the youngster with Asperger's Syndrome in mind. At the end of every short chapter there is a Stop and Think box with key questions about the characters' motivations and feelings.
I think this book would be a useful addition to the library of any secondary school with youngsters with Asperger's Syndrome or higher level ASD.

-- Michael Jones, Educational Consultant
For those people working with children who have control and communication problems, this book is a must. It is not too young or easy for 10 or 11 year olds to appreciate but also not too old for younger children. It is well written with places where you can stop and discuss the book together. A wonderful read for parents or workers to read together with a child or a small group. -- Play Therapy UK

A unique and fascinating approach to language and communication skills through story telling. This book can be read independently by children or with the help of an adult. I feel it could have a profound impact on all children with communication problems as well as children who are immature socially and emotionally. Throughout the book "Stop & Think" questions prompt the reader/user to explore feelings, emotions and reactions to a variety of events throughout the story thus encouraging a greater understanding of theirs and others feelings, body language and situations.
This book is a great tool for many communication disorders and difficulties not just Aspergers Syndrome.

-- NAGC Newsletter (National Association of Gifted Children)
A science fiction story for children with autistic spectrum disorders, designed to help them overcome various challenges and become strong communicators. -- Current Awareness Service
