A very curious tale

Told from an autistic child’s point of view this bestselling novel by Mark Haddon, the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, tells of the mysteries surrounding the death of the neighbor’s poodle, Wellington.

Christopher Boone a young autistic child is a mathematical genius, who detest the color yellow and at the touch of a finger throws a temper tantrum.

Brilliantly written, Haddon captures the heart and mind of young Christopher demonstrating his struggles, strengths and personal successes. On his quest to find Wellington’s murderer he learns of another hidden secret that sends him on a physical, mental and emotional journey to find safety and rebuild trust.

There are a few diagrammatic line drawings interspersed amongst the text to further demonstrate Christopher’s tale. Overall a very captivating, quick read.

I would highly recommend adding this to your reading list!
