She is the author of thirteen books for children and teenagers which sell widely in Australia, the UK, the US and the Middle East, and her books have been translated into ten languages. With a primary school teaching background, Kathy became intrigued by certain children's unusual traits. After many years of dealing with, and talking to, people with Asperger Syndrome, she has a wonderful insight into the mindset of Aspies. Her sensitivity to their strengths and weaknesses and her passion for bringing understanding of their ways to the general public, and her ability to encapsulate this in her literature, has made Kathy a household name amongst Asperger Syndrome circles.

By Karen Glenny 07 Nov 2011 5

A very easy to read book on the struggles those with ASD face. No big words or medical terms so it appeals to kids because it is an enjoyable novel - yet they are also learning about their sibling, cousin, friend while they are reading.

I bought this book for my 8 year old daughter as she has a 10 year old brother with ASD. She really enjoyed this book and it gave her more insight into why Isaac struggles with different things. I read it to her, so she got some special time with me also. She now wants to buy a copy for us to donate to her school library so other kids can understand her brother better.
