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.'

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.
