    One thought on “Blue Bottle Mystery - The Graphic Novel: An Asperger Adventure”

    1. After finishing a brilliantly written (and truly unputdownable) novel about two weeks ago, I was at a loss as to what I should pick up next. I knew it would be hard to find something that would be as good as my previous read, and thanks to my book hangover, I couldn’t seem to settle on anything. I picked up a few different genres but nothing could match the sheer brilliance of the book I’ve just finished, so I gave up after a few pages. That’s when I decided to have a quick browse on NetGa [...]

    2. I’m always impressed when an author can get inside someone’s head and give a little bit of their point of view. While this isn’t ever completely possible to do, I think the author does a decent job of it here. It’s an interesting story, though at times it seems a bit too simply-written when the story doesn’t require it (like when two adults are conversing). But I think that’s so younger minds can absorb it. And maybe it’s part of the narrative, too. Interesting that it’s written [...]

    3. This was a very one-opening and important read!Between 1 to 2 months ago, my baby sister was diagnosed with Autism. Me and my family have been finding ways to educate ourselves about how it works and how it affects her. Though Asperger Syndrome is not completely the same, there are similarities.A lot of this hit home for me and at times it was hard to read because it was so familiar. But it was also a fun and heartwarming story.I did wish it was longer, but I still appreciate what we've got in t [...]

    4. Informative, Entertaining, and InspirationalThis is a new graphic novel treatment of the author's original novel of the same name, which was published to rave reviews in 2001. It is a very successful translation/reinterpretation into graphic form and should expand the book's appeal and accessibility. We are fourteen years later, and it is probably fair to suggest that Asperger's is now much more widely recognized and understood than it was in 2001. That said, there is always room for better unde [...]

    5. A short, easy to read story about Ben, a boy with Asperger Syndrome, and his friend Andy who find a mysterious old blue bottle buried in their school's garden. The simplistic art style, whilst not spectacular, fits well with the story.A tale about friendship, genies and being different.Thanks to NetGalley for the review copy.

    6. I was provided a copy of this book from Netgalley and the publishers in exchange for an honest opinion.The artwork in this graphic novel is very simplistic and colourful, easy to follow as targeted for middle grade.I enjoyed this Graphic Novel it was very informative on a basic level, it showed family dynamics and symptoms of aspergers. I believe this should be put in all schools for children to read, to recognise that there are illnesses out there that define people the way they are. I have onl [...]

    7. Tells the story of a few days in the life of an initially undiagnosed aspergers student, his teacher and family. I am in two minds about the book. The 'excuse' for the lack of diagnosis on the part of the family seems to be the death of the mother. At school the distraction of the teacher who is coping with the illness and then death of her mother. However the nasty portrayals of classroom scenes are probably pretty accurate where ignorance and lack of personal advocacy exists.The magical elemen [...]

    8. Read the full review here: newberyandbeyond/arc-round *Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I am passingly familiar with Asperger Syndrome because of my college education classes, and as far as my limited knowledge goes, this book does a great job of depicting a kid who has AS. Ben really wants to please his family, his teacher, and his classmates, but he seems to be constantly misunderstanding them and doing things wrong. When he and his friend Andy find a [...]

    9. I read this graphic novel through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I love graphic novels and was eager to read this one that is described as an Asperger's Adventure. This is a short, but decent graphic novel introduction to what it is like to live with Asperger's Syndrome (AS). Ben has AS and him and his friend Andy find a blue bottle. Is there a genie and are their wishes being granted? All of a sudden Ben's life changes very dramatically in a short period of time. This story uses mag [...]

    10. Not having read the original novel I wasn't sure what to expect but this graphic novel is really good. An interesting story that really gets into the mind and thought processes of a boy with Aspergers. The allusion to his father's struggle to come to terms with his child's diagnosis and his attempts to learn how to better deal with his needs is touching. This graphic novel would make a great addition to any school library to spread awareness of Aspergers or just as a good read , would be useful [...]

    11. I quite liked this because it presented a difficult-to-understand subject pictorially, which makes it easier for younger readers to relate. The visuals were also well-executed (in particular, the expressions and body language). It is told from both from the adult's and (Asperger) child's points of view.

    12. This graphic novel is a cute, easy way of helping people understand autism/asperger's. It explains it without being overly simplistic or boring. It also has an actual plot to it. I'm thinking about getting it for my classroom library.

    13. A must read graphic novel for all those working with kids with asperger syndrome AND even those that don't. It is also a fantastic story.

    14. Blue Bottle Mystery is about a boy named Ben, Ben had a horrible life. Why? Because almost every day he would get bullied by Troy, and his friend Scot. Also because Ben had a mean teacher that broke his ruler. One day, Andy, his best friend, and Ben were digging holes behind the school and they found a bottle that can make them have good luck. With this bottle, Ben and Andy could be the luckiest boys in the world.Ben is a brilliant kid, he always knows what to do because when he got spit on he d [...]

    15. I think this is an awesome book both for kids with Asperger's and for kids without it--and for adults. It brings up a lot of the issues faced in terms of not being able to understand sarcasm, colloquialisms, etc along with special interests, routine It really touches on so many important areas that are so good to know about. And I think it's great that there's a story with a child with Asperger's as the hero. Things are solved easily, which isn't often the case in real life, but it would be nice [...]

    16. I really enjoyed this book! The art is fun and upbeat, but the main character is truly the strength. I was absolutely fascinated by Ben's internal monologue, and found him both intriguing and wonderfully sympathetic. The story is not maudlin about Asperger's but shows a realistic picture of a child working his way through the world. Introducing a fantastic element to it lightens the mood and will help, I think, create an appeal to kids. I also appreciated the honesty of adults working through th [...]

    17. Blue Bottle Mystery is a short graphic novel that tells a very youth-friendly story while also teaching readers about what Aspergers is, and showcasing some of the difficulties that people with Aspergers face. It would be a good educational book for children, but also for adults trying to learn about the condition.

    18. Middle school mystery/drama in graphic novel form where the main character happens to have Asperger. Action, bullies, and a real look at how someone with Asperger's processes the world. An essential read.
