Synopsis

Kevin thinks his mum is ridiculous for saying that he is wasting the sunshine and fresh air. As if it would ever run out! Kevin thinks you should always do up the top button. Why else is it there? Kevin thinks his computer brain is awesome because he can remember lots and lots of important facts about outer space, computers and football. Above all, Kevin thinks you should always tell the truth. "Kevin Thinks" is the story of a boy with Asperger Syndrome (AS) who sees the world a little...differently! His quirky observations will strike a chord with all those who are familiar with AS, from his special interest in outer space and his aversion to itchy clothes, to his (mis)understanding of non-literal expressions and his tendency to say exactly what he thinks, regardless of the consequences. The illustrations accompanying the text reveal what is really happening from a neurotypical point of view, to often hilarious effect. Humorous and insightful in equal measure, and ending with a positive message about the potential of individuals with Asperger Syndrome, "Kevin Thinks" is a fun read for all ages, and an ideal starting point for family and classroom discussions.
