Very good read!

This one is a winner and I am happy to recommend it to anyone.  the curious incident of the dog in the night-time is written by Mark Haddon, who spent time working with autistic people.  The book takes the form of a journal of a boy with Asperger's Syndrome as he tries to solve the mystery of the murder of a neighbour's dog.  It provides insight into how this boy sees the world around him and how the autistic mind works - it is a revelation and one of the best books I have read in recent years.

I'll look for this one. We always have felt that my youngest grandson (who is a genius in some ways) has a touch of Asperger's if that is possible.
