Editorial Reviews

Review

A heart-warming and encouraging book and ideal for anybody who cares for an Asperger child. -- National Child-minding Association, UK

An absolutely charming book!...A PERFECT way to introduce Asperger Syndrome to classmates, neighbors, friends, helpers, and the community. -- Susan J. Moreno, M.A., MAAP Services for Autism and Asperger Syndrome

Highlights the unique qualities of individuals with Asperger's and has us 'down to a T.' -- Wendy Lawson, author of many books on the autism spectrum

If you have just begun to discover why someone with Asperser's is different, this book will inform and entertain you. -- Tony Attwood, author of Asperger's Syndrome and The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome

Review

There is a great deal of truth in humour. If you have only just begun to discover why someone with Asperser's syndrome is different, this book will inform and entertain you. The descriptions provide an accurate balance between the qualities and difficulties associated with Asperger's syndrome, while the photographs will make the journey of discovery enjoyable and remarkable. (Tony Attwood, author of Asperger's Syndrome and The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome)

All Cats have Asperger's Syndrome is a fantastic book for helping your child understand Aspergers.

I loved this book, but for more reasons then what the books says or shows.

My library contains dozens of books on AS. I have read them all. I wish I could get others to do the same, but time being what it is and life being as complex as ever, this is simply an impossible wish. I highly recommend this book as *the* book to present to people with little time but much need to learn about AS. It is also a great book to present to children; those on the spectrum and those in the neurotypical population who would all benefit from understanding their peers with AS and other ASD/PDD related issues.

This book is cute and sweet. It is not top-shelf research. It is gentle and gracious. A perfect coffee table book to garnish interest and start discussions. I loved it.

I am a parent with two children who have AS. We found this book at B & N and my son loved it. It described him, his behaviors and it could have just as easily been him in the pictures instead of the cats. I found it to be a very good way to describe some of his behaviors and the feelings he and his sister have. I will be buying it from Amazon (much better price) and plan on sending it to school with him. The one or two people at his school who understand AS will get a kick out of it. Since it is a cute and fun book, maybe some of his teachers will look at it and perhaps start to have an understanding of him and his behaviors. It's a quick, easy and fun read (picture book) which hits the AS behaviors dead on.

Ten years ago, when I finally figured out what Asperger's was and, at the same time, I discovered that I had several Asperger's children, and a few Asperger's adults, on my caseload as a psychotherapist, I began searching for easy ways to explain Asperger's. It was, and still is, an uphill struggle.

I'd already found what, to my knowledge, remains one of the best general books on Asperger's Syndrome: Tony Attwood's Asperger's Syndrome: A Guide for Parents and Professionals. (A more up-to-date and extensive general book, now, is Attwood's The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome. It's much longer, but still quite readable & it's filled with clear examples.) It's great for adults wanting a clear, solid understanding -- parents, family members, teachers, mental health professionals, scout-leaders, church leaders, and friends of high school reading level & above. Later, Attwood produced some DVDs, Dr. Tony Attwood presents: Asperger's Syndrome, Volume 2, Asperger's Syndrome: A Guide for Parents and Professionals with Dr. Tony Attwood, which broadened his outreach. Since then, AS book-publishing has become a cottage industry.

But until I read Kathy Hoopmann's "All Cats Have Asperger's Syndrome", I hadn't found something quick, accurate and easy to read & to understand.

This is a beautiful book. I have shared it with family and my son's school and even my 8 year old son. It was great to see him relate to it, to identify with "That's just like me! That's what I feel!" And even "That doesn't happen to me". A wonderful book that family and children can relate to.

This is the best and most concise explanation of Asperger Syndrome that I have ever seen. It is always difficult to tell people just why my child is different. My child often appears disobedient to others and acts inappropriately. This book makes it much easier to explain. It is it a quick read and easy to understand.

I bought this book because my younger son has aspergers and also has a love of cats. As soon as we got this book we sat down and read it. The pictures alone make the book cute. But the dialogue that goes with the pictures were awesome. My son could relate to so many of them. We'd see a picture and the words next to them - "This is sooooo you!" I'd say and we'd smile and laugh. He brought the book to school to show everyone. His one teacher has a son with AS and she borrowed it to show it to him as well. It is such a positive look at AS and presented in such a way that helps people understand the AS kid and know that even with AS he can still do great things.

Format: Hardcover
I didnt know what to expect when I ordered this book; thought it may be a series of humerous comments. As it happens, Kathy Hoopman as created an attractive, thought provoking and emotion stirring little story.

Enlisting the help of dozens of gorgeous cats and kittens, the author tells the tale of a child with Aspergers, in simple sentence-plus-picture format. Her careful choice of image, cleverly illustrates each point she makes, leading the reader on a journey of understanding, hopefully leading to greater tolerance and compassion for our fellow man.

Our child's teacher read it in a class of 9 year olds to help them all understand why some of us are different and yet perfectly OK!
