All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome

All Cats Have Aspergers 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.

This engaging book is an ideal, gentle introduction to the world of AS. "I bought this book and gave it to my 12year old son with Aspergers for xmas. He loved it and so did all of my extended family. I would recommend it for anyone." - Alison Davis, Mother Port Macquarie NSW
