Lisa O’Sullivan, parent of child with Autism Spectrum Disorder
A warm and insightful account of the emotional and physical changes that take place during adolescence. Full of practical advice on social boundaries given in clear language with visual illustrations. A wonderfully reassuring guide for children and their parents as they approach those formative years.

I have been teaching students on the autistic spectrum for over a decade now and I am energised to think that I can use these books in a comprehensive manner in my class, encourage parents to utilise this material in a comfortable and comforting way at home, and I am massively delighted to believe that students themselves will be able to access, follow and actually use these books! A huge step forward!
This well-illustrated book for boys approaching puberty gives lots of information on all the specific things having to do with growing up. Aimed at young people on the autistic spectrum, including those with Asperger's syndrome, it explains in detail and in simple language all the things one needs to know. It could also be useful to those not on the spectrum, particularly as it answers lots of questions on things that other books often don't go into...I particularly liked the section on girls and how they go through puberty too. There are several pages of information for parents and carers at the end of the book and a short list for further reading. Altogether, this makes a readable and interesting book for boys, who will find the information invaluable during these turbulent growing up years.
