Product Details

Praise

This picture book is an affirming mirror for children with Asperger’s and an empathetic window for those who don’t but should understand why other kids are sometimes different. Told in the first person from Isaac’s perspective, the narrative is appropriately direct, utilizing clear, no-frills sentences: “Because I’m a superhero, I have lots of things to think about.” Similarly, the illustrations are simple in form and color, depicting smiling faces and only the most essential details. The effect is informative and endearing.
—Booklist Online

A serviceable starter for discussions of spectrum disorders with younger neurotypical audiences.
—Kirkus Reviews

Walsh’s sweet and significant picture book depicts Asperger’s syndrome as a superpower that makes its protagonist, a young boy named Isaac, different than his peers…images, along with the kid-friendly superhero theme, work together to craft a story that is informative and engaging. A helpful list of links about Asperger’s and autism spectrum disorder directed at educators is appended. A very effective way to build awareness of and sensitivity toward children with Asperger’s syndrome
—School Library Journal

A super read.
