“Jude Welton gives the young child with Asperger’s the power of his own voice in explaining himself to his friends. Her calm and deceptively simple approach is complemented by Jane Telford’s reassuringly everyday pictures. Parents have needed this book for a very long time. . . It will also be especially helpful to primary schools.” – Elizabeth Newson, Early Years Diagnostic Centre
