Blue Bottle Mystery is a delight to read that is more than just another kid's book. For the first time, the issues and frustrations that a child may have with Asperger Syndrome are explored within a fictional format especially for children. Its portrayal of Ben as the central character offers other children with autistic spectrum disorders and their peers a positive role model. It is a valuable teaching tool that demystifies children with Asperger Syndrome, justifying their individuality as valid and interesting.
In Blue Bottle Mystery Kathy Hoopmann has combined her love of children with her passion for fantasy literature to produce a delightful read for anyone who loves an adventure and wants a unique insight into the mind of an Asperger child.
Ben finds an unusual old bottle buried in the school yard, and in a roundabout way it helps Ben and his family find out what is causing some of the persistent problems he has both at home and at school.

A cute, middle grade book that could be used to introduce children to the idea of Aspergers Syndrome. The story its self is about a young boy with Aspergers, who just believes that he is different. His family also are unaware of his condition. The main character and his best friend in this story set about solving a mystery revolving around a bottle they find on the playground at school. At the same time, the adults unravel the mystery of an Autistic boy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
