#awallofbooks It is a novel written in 2003 in the first-person of a fifteen-year-old boy with autistic spectrum condition. It is lovely and absolutely amazing how he explains his fears and difficulties when interpreting the world around him. He describes that for him it is really difficult to mingle with others, so he prefers to mingle with maths or animals. I highly recommend this book for teachers and children who live with young people with these problems. By Vicky. EOI Luarca.
Pinner says, "This is a book about a meerkat that has autism spectrum disorder. Although it appears to be a children's book w/ exceptional, colorful pictures & easy to read vocabulary, it doubles as a teaching tool for adults to help them not only understand the autism spectrum better, but give them strategies to help the autistic individual be more successful in his or her environment. This book will undoubtedly touch your heart & at the same time give you an understanding of autism."
