Lisa and the Lacemaker: An Asperger Adventure by Kathy Hoopmann is an engaging mystery which both entertains and also highlights the challenges and positives for ASD kids.

When Lisa discovers a hidden cottage in her friend's Ben's big garden, she becomes intrigued by her grandmother's tales of the old lacemaker and in the craft of making lace.

Lisa and the Lacemaker has only an echo of fantasy in it – I wonder if it qualifies as part of the genre at all. An old wrong, an old craft, perhaps an old ghost. The focus of the novel is on the inner thoughts of a child with Aspergers, as is Of Mice and Aliens, a title with several layers of fun and pun.

Bought this series on recommendation for my son who is autistic. He really enjoyed them and was able to relate well to the main characters awkwardness and inward feelings. Recommended for anyone with an autistic child to read together with them.

Kathy Hoopman's gentle stories are ideal for introducing a child to Asperger Syndrome through a hero or heroine. Lisa is intelligent and quirky. We are encouraged to embrace her difference not condemn it.
