Armond is invited to a friend’s birthday party, he has Asperger’s and he is very worried about fitting in. Parties are noisy, disorganized, and smelly—all things that are hard for a kid with Asperger’s. Worst of all is socializing with other kids.

This book encourages kids to help out kids with ASperger’s or Autism. Kids with Autism or ASperger’s often struggle with the ordeal of making friends and helping them out once in a while would mean a lot to them.

The pictures in the book were very bright, vivid and colourful. The vocabulary was simple and so it helped enhance the comprehension of the story. Overall, a relatively good read.

One of my favourite children's authors sensitively depicts the challenges some children face engaging in typical childhood activities like attending a birthday party in this optimistic story.
