Being eight, Connor knew a lot. He knew that Mrs. Winters did not like to be interrupted, but he was sure she would appreciate his fact-finding methods--and who wouldn't want to know more about geckos? He knew he needed the new library book, "More All About Dogs," more than Jane needed to keep sitting on that stool--and he only nudged her off so he could reach it. On a day when everything seemed to go wrong, Connor turned out to be the only one who could save the school from a dog-caused Code Yellow! Told from the point of view of a child with Asperger Syndrome, author Jodi Carmichael highlights some of the challenges--and triumphs--of experiencing a day at school from a different perspective.

"Using humor, warmth and understanding, Jodi Carmichael has done a wonderful job of bringing to life some of the common daily challenges and strengths of a child with Asperger Syndrome. Through the thoughts of her hero, Connor, and the book's many charming illustrations, parents, teachers, and fellow students will be enlightened while entertained." April Buchanan, Ph.D., C.Psych., Educational Psychologist
"In a story that delights while offering insight into how a child with Asperger's processes his school environment, Jodi Carmichael has captured a bright and honest voice in Connor. Readers will most certainly be charmed by him, and want to talk with him about dogs." Anita Daher, author of Racing for Diamonds and Spider's Song
Mom-ology: To have Ms. Carmichael and Ms. Ackerley share these issues in the way that they have, not only makes it enjoyable but easy to understand. "
