I interviewed author Nancy Ogaz for a feature article I wrote for a weekly newspaper in her area (San Jose/Los Gatos, CA.) She has a child with Asperger's and has researched AS thoroughly, which to me makes her a highly credible authority to write a book like this. Nancy is also very kind, creative and sensitive toward children's needs. I have a young cousin with AS and when Nancy gave me this book, it was a wonderful find. :) I read it, I gave a copy to my cousin's mother (also my cousin, of course), she read it, and hopefully will read it to her son. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to help their AS child understand why he/she is 'different'! I also recommend it to anyone whose child has an AS classmate. I'm 31 and obviously don't read kids' books much, but I truly enjoyed this one. :)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I enjoyed the book as it captured my attention from beginning to end and showed sensitivity to children who might be a bit out of the ordinary while portraying that they lead active and fun lives. Children who read the book will gain an insight into how other children feel about themselves.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
