Written in a Seussian style, this delightful story explains why children suffering from attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) react differently to simple situations in their daily lives. Explaining the symptoms of ADHD in an entertaining way, this tale helps children understand their differences, accept treatment, and retain positive self-esteem. Parents, teachers, and doctors will welcome this dialogue concerning how they can help children with ADHD.


"Positive and upbeat this small book of rhyme and reason...a perfect accompaniment to the ups and downs of ADHD." —Sydney Zentall, professor of special education and psychological sciences, Purdue University

"This book can serve as an invaluable resource for parents as they help their child understand ADHD and, most importantly, reinforce the message that there are ways of learning to cope with this condition . . . offers realistic hope to children and parents." —Robert Brooks, Harvard Medical School

"Dr. Goldstein has created a lively, entertaining, beautifully illustrated, and highly informative book for children with ADHD that will greatly assist clinicians and parents in counseling these children about their disorder and in helping to remove the stigma that may be associated with it in the minds of these children." —Russell A. Barkley, clinical professor of psychiatry, Medical University of South Carolina
