Reviews

Blue Bottle Mystery is not just a solid exercise in taking an already successful work and re-imagining it for a new readership but also an object lesson in how to adapt material in a way that makes full use of the exclusive storytelling potential of the comics form. We need to see far more graphic medicine aimed at a younger readership like this that never patronises its target audience but informs and elucidates through the remarkable communicative power of sequential art. -- Broken Frontier
It's short and sweet, pretty fun on its own merits, but even better because it teaches about a group of kids on the autism spectrum who are often misunderstood. Rating: Pretty Darn Good. -- Newbery and Beyond
If you're looking for a short, yet intriguing read - either for yourself or for kids and younger siblings - I would definitely recommend this. -- Books Biscuits and Tea
This is a book that offers an explanation of aspects of Asperger's Syndrome in a fun way making it accessible to a wide range of readers, especially those (on the spectrum or not) who have a particular passion for visuals... All in all this is a perceptive, optimistic story that artfully weaves information relating to the condition throughout. It should find a place on the classroom shelves of all primary schools and in lower secondary libraries: those who read it will one hopes come away with a greater understanding of what it is to be 'an aspie'. Let's hear it for individuality and difference, and the way such characteristics can enrich the lives of us all. -- Red Reading Hub
I found this graphic novel both an absorbing story and an excellent way to try to better understand people with Asperger syndrome... I like the information boxes that are interspersed with the dialogues to help the reader understand situations from the point of view of someone with Asperger syndrome. -- Juno Magazine
This book is fun! I learnt a bit more about Asperger Syndrome. Would I recommend it to other kids? I sure would. I think they would understand it as well as me. -- Bobby Elley, aged 12 * Aukids *
Readers will come away with a valuable understanding of Asperger's, both through the text and the very clear illustrations. -- Anne Harding * The School Librarian Journal *
