    This new comic book, You Are a Social Detective: Explaining Social Thinking to Kids, is a perfect introduction to the social thinking curriculum Think Social'. The combination of engaging illustrations and clear concepts set the stage for in depth work on the `expected' and the `unexpected' behavior and other social concepts that are so challenging for our young clients. I especially appreciated the humorous approach to`School Smarts' and `Social Smarts', which are so confusing yet real to our kids. As a psychologist, I have a new tool to introduce those vulnerable social challenges with young and inexperienced social perspective takers and their parents. The entertainment value increases the chance for viable follow-up at home. This is also a good prerequisite to the `Superflex' curriculum. Because this is a long book and the text sets the stage for discussion, therapists will likely need more than one session to cover the entire book. --Kacey Chandler, Ph.D., autism specialist and school psychologist, Tucson, Arizona Finally, a book that appeals to kids with ASD by using cartoons to convey the subtleties of `expected' and `unexpected' social behaviors. Even better is that there are enough examples to allow kids to grasp the core concepts of Social Thinking. As my teenage son Adam explains it, The best part about this book is finding out how to make other people happy.'" --Deborah Pugh, parent and Director Research & Training, ACT - Autism Community Training, Vancouver, Canada Finally, a book that appeals to kids with ASD by using cartoons to convey the subtleties of `expected' and `unexpected' social behaviors.
