    I think that the personal view on Asperger Syndrome is explained so well - but the art lacks something for me.

    Yes, there is a light mystery here, and yes, it is kind of cool but the best part of this book is Lisa, who has Asperger Syndrome, which is a form of Autism. To me, she seems, as her great aunt says, just like she was, but now they have a name for it. I'm sure I feel the way Lisa does, not wanting to be around other people, and seeing things differently than everyone else. "I think differently from others. and I sometimes don't understand people too well. Especially at parties."

    I received this book, for free, in exchange for an honest review. This is a well written way to explain Asperger Syndrome to a child. It is also an enjoyable story that encourages us to realize we are all different and that those differences make life interesting. This book also encourages imagination which is good for children of all ages.Lastly, it is an enjoyable story to read to a younger child. It was with the last purpose in mind that I read this book.

It was good for this purpose although there were a couple of things inappropriate for a 5 year old (e.g. death) and more words per page then she's used to. I don't think the book was written for this purpose but it worked well. All in all one of the better non super-hero graphic novels.

    Lisa and the Lacemaker is the story of one little girl with Asperger’s, one Great Aunt with nothing to lose in her old age, and a ghost who’d like to find something very precious. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this volume as it was previously published as part of a larger collection called The Asperger Adventures and so I wasn’t sure if it would be much to sink my teeth into as a separate volume. How wrong I was! This one is such a charming little graphic novel that it was impossible not to i Lisa and the Lacemaker is the story of one little girl with Asperger’s, one Great Aunt with nothing to lose in her old age, and a ghost who’d like to find something very precious. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this volume as it was previously published as part of a larger collection called The Asperger Adventures and so I wasn’t sure if it would be much to sink my teeth into as a separate volume. How wrong I was! This one is such a charming little graphic novel that it was impossible not to immediately be very fond of it. As well as the story – which I won’t spoil because it unfolds just nicely all on its own – the volume does, of course, bring up wonderful discussions about difference. Lisa is on the Asperger’s spectrum and finds herself enjoying her own company, disliking touch of any kind, and keeping a satin security blanket by her side at all times to cover her ears should she hear sounds that she can’t handle. I love the fact that Kathy Hoopmann refused to shy away from any of the truly difficult parts of Asperger’s such as Lisa’s extreme inability to picture anyone else’s internal worlds. Conversely, however, I also love the fact that Hoopman made a very deliberate choice to hero Lisa’s Mum who puts up with a lot of things and is very black-and-white about the fact that Lisa’s behaviour can be both intensely annoying and very worrying for her. There are some brilliant scenes in here with both parties frustrated with each other but ultimately trying to connect. The art was beautiful. With a simple, mostly pastel colour palette, everything feels round and appealing to the eye. The motif of the lace really colours every page as it links dialogue bubbles, borders and scenes in a subtle way that makes you take note when it finally punctuates the story and pulls you inexorably back to the mystery. I think this one is an important one not just for children with Asperger’s to see some of themselves reflected in literature (as there are other children with Asperger’s featured, all of whom have different difficulties) but also for children who don’t face these kinds of issues to introduce them to a type of diversity which isn’t as obvious as someone’s skin colour or choice of clothes. I really enjoyed this and I’d recommend it for any adult looking for a light, smile-inducing read and any parent/caregiver for opening up difficult discussions with grace and humour.

    I find these pretty delightful. The characters have Aspberger's, yes, but it's just a behavioral trait they have and not anything that is necessarily centralized to the story. They're also not portrayed as "extra"ordinary because of this syndrome. Just typical kids.

    So fun! I'll have to try the text version and the other story.

    Simple story good for bedtime reading. It may not hold the interest of the typical middle grade reader. My two kids finished reading the novel in one sitting, but weren’t too ecstatic about their feedback, although they did comment the quality of the graphics. Review copy provided by NetGalley.

    Despite starting very much like an Asperger's 101 where not one but every differential the syndrome might possibly cause is given to us in the broadest of strokes, this book works inasmuch as it just about makes the positive aspects of the situation all become relevant to an interesting plot. Lisa therefore has to shrug off not so much society's non-acceptance of her, but also the writer's requirements to be PC, and almost by accident gets involved in a suitably dramatic and heart-warming story Despite starting very much like an Asperger's 101 where not one but every differential the syndrome might possibly cause is given to us in the broadest of strokes, this book works inasmuch as it just about makes the positive aspects of the situation all become relevant to an interesting plot. Lisa therefore has to shrug off not so much society's non-acceptance of her, but also the writer's requirements to be PC, and almost by accident gets involved in a suitably dramatic and heart-warming story concerning a new friend, an old friend and an even older house of mystery. The design is ever inventive, with the squiggly worm-like tags on the speech bubbles dancing to their own rhythms at times, and the colours and simplicity of the telling make this a fun and eye-opening read for the target audience. Not perfect, but well worth a look.
