It's Raining Cats and Dogs

An autism spectrum guide to the confusing world of idioms, metaphors and everyday expressions written and illustrated by Michael Barton.

For people with an ASD who interpret meanings very literally, the English language can be frightfully confusing. For example, what do cats and dogs have to do with the weather? And what have chickens got to do with being a coward? This book utilises simple illustrations and clear explanations to explain all of our most common expressions that others use unquestioningly as part of everyday language. 

The drawings will form instantly memorable references for those with ASDs to recall whenever they need to and will be helpful for anyone curious to understand the ASD way of thinking. They will enable people on the spectrum and their friends, families, teachers and colleagues to better understand and communicate with each other.
