Publisher's Summary

The well-loved adventure story about a boy with Asperger's who finds a mysterious magic bottle....  

This is a warm, fun-filled fantasy story for children with a difference: the hero is Ben, a boy with Asperger syndrome. 

When Ben and his friend Andy find an old bottle in the schoolyard, they little realize the surprises about to be unleashed in their lives. Bound up with this exciting mystery is the story of how Ben is diagnosed with Asperger syndrome and how he and his family deal with the problems and joys that come along.  

Blue Bottle Mystery is a delight to listen to that is more than just another kid's audiobook. For the first time, the issues and frustrations that a child may have with Asperger syndrome are explored within a fictional format especially for children. Its portrayal of Ben as the central character offers other children with autistic spectrum disorders and their peers a positive role model. It is a valuable teaching tool that demystifies children with Asperger syndrome, justifying their individuality as valid and interesting.  

In Blue Bottle Mystery Kathy Hoopmann has combined her love of children with her passion for fantasy literature to produce a delightful listen for anyone who loves an adventure and wants a unique insight into the mind of an Asperger child.

Well written from an aspergers child point of view

The book was easy for my son to relate to when it came to school issues. Also the behavior and thoughts of the Aspie child were spot in.
