From the Publisher:
When we tell someone that our child is autistic, the most common response is a sad face and an apologetic look. I hate it when people say `I'm sorry to hear that'||Parenting a child on the autistic spectrum can be tough at the best of times, but few books take the time to celebrate the love and laughter an autistic child can elicit in their parents and those around them. In this warm, honest and laugh-out-loud tale of bringing up Bobby, now ten, Georgina Derbyshire shares and rejoices in his `slightly different' childhood.||As she outlines momentous events in Bobby's life, from the day he decided he was a dog (continuning life as a canine for a year afterwards), to the time he catapulted an innocent shopper into a mountain of strawberries, Georgina repeatedly challenges the perception of autism as an afflication, maintaining that neurotypical people often make far less sense. Through her light-hearted and hilarious story-telling, she reveals how social codes and psychological games make the neurotypical world a very confusing place to live in, more so than ever if you happen to be a young boy with a passion for rocks, tape measures and trains.||This book is a must for anybody involved in the upbringing of an autistic child, whether they are in search of a little comfort, companionship, light relief - or all three.
