Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6Zipper has ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). He is a likable but impulsive kid, speaking and acting without thinking. His parents recognize a problem, visit a neurologist, and decide to try medication and behavioral help (weekly planner, lists, notes). A nicely developed subplot involves the boy's friendship with an elderly musician in a nursing home. By book's end, Zipper has taken better control of his own life, and readers understand that ADHD is something you're born with, not something you catch from others. An appendix includes additional facts about ADHD and a source list for help. Clearly intended for a specific purpose, this book is written in a straightforward style.Linda Beck, Indian Valley Public Library, Telford, PA
