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)

Customer Reviews

This book is so cute and very much easy to read.
Trevor's mom
I have a 7 yr old grandson who was just diagnosed with Aspergers, and when I got the book, we read it together.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

I loved this book, but for more reasons then what the books says or shows. I am an adult with Asperger Syndrome. I was diagnosed when I was 5 years old (1995), but the condition was never really explained to me. Then about 3-4 years ago I saw a Law and Order episode that had AS in it. I had never felt curious to look up my condition, so I did. I was suprised by what it was and did a little research on it but not full blown. For about the last month or so though I got kicked into high gear to do some serious research. Why? Because for one reason or another the question popped in my head "Is AS genetic?". Upon finding out that it was I freaked, I'll be honest, I freaked. I've lived with this my whole life and I was terrified of passing it on. To make matters worse, for one reason or another, Autism Spectrum Disorder made it seem to my brain that AS was like a distant cousin of Autism but not actual Autism. Then I found out that AS is in fact high functioning Autism. I freaked more, now I was not only scared of my future kids going through what I did growing up, but I was scared to death I'd pass on full blown low functioning Autism. Well I found out that last part wouldn't happen, but I was still worried about passing on AS. I know plenty of people with AS grow up to be splendid adults. It's the childhood I was worried about, worried about the kids my children would eventually go to school with. Then it hit me to stop looking stuff up online and to go to the library. That is where I found this amazing book. Upon reading it I recognized many of the symptoms mentioned in myself, but also that they really do fit most cats I know (and I know cats). Suddenly I wasn't afraid to pass on AS, because the idea that I'd be giving birth to a cat like child made me feel worlds better.Read more ›
