Explaining autism to quite young children can be very difficult, and this splendid picture book will go a long way to helping classmates and friends understand just what goes on in the brain of a child with Asperger Syndrome. Isaac likes to think of himself as a superhero, and with his unusual talents, he and his friends must learn how to cope with each other’s differences. He loves bouncing on the trampoline, but not football; he likes to tell friends lots of interesting facts, but sometimes they won’t listen; he doesn’t always understand jokes, and in class he is allowed to play with his favourite toy because it helps him concentrate. Noises can really hurt his ears, and when he looks at someone, it scares him if he looks straight into their eyes. He knows he isn’t really a superhero, but he and his brother like to pretend they are in their games, and he tells us that his brother understands and accepts him with all his differences. The hope is that after reading this story, others will understand him too. The pictures are full of large figures on simple, effective backgrounds, and lots of colour and humour add to the fun. This is the perfect book for schools and explains Asperger Syndrome in terms children will relate to easily.
