Description - Something Different About Dad by Kirsti Evans

There's something different about Dad. He gets upset when we're even a minute late for dinner, he is angry at noisy family gatherings, and he really likes talking about buses. He is also always on time to pick us up from school, helps with our homework for hours on end, and has a detailed knowledge of car engines that has saved day trips from breakdown disaster. It's ok that there's something different about Dad!

Following the story of Sophie and Daniel whose Dad, Mark, is on the autism spectrum, this heart-warming comic reveals the family's journey from initial diagnosis to gradual appreciation of Dad's differences. The family learn the reasons behind Dad's difficulties with communication, the senses, flexibility, and relationships, and find ways to make family life easier for everyone. It is an informative, light-hearted and reassuring look at growing up with a parent on the autism spectrum.
