New comment on Dannie's dilemma : the shopping trip : the right shoes http://ihc.mykoha.co.nz/cgi-bin/koha/opac-detail.pl?biblionumber=13576#comments By Haldane, Carol.

Brentwood Chipmunkpublishing 2008 . 65 p. ; 21 cm. 29.

Christine Stark commented on 01/12/2020: Useful to give a bit of insight and easy to read but I had hoped for more. The continuous change in perspective (first to third person and back) is somewhat confusing and while Dannie's mum knows about her daughter's ASD she does not seem to have much understanding or appreciation for Dannie's struggles and challenges and tells her off or gets exasperated by standard ASD behaviour. The description of Dannie is also in parts overly stereotypical, probably to drive home a point, at times slipping out of the role (by using metaphors herself). E.g. Dannie misunderstands every idiom she comes across by taking it literal; the way she is described (grasp of language, independence skills, etc.) she would probably have learned at some point that idioms and figures of speech exist and would be aware that she has problems 'getting them'.
