The Panicosaurus is a delightful book which cleverly explains to children how the brain works to produce anxiety and ways they can manage and take control of their own level of anxiety. The illustrations are great and the storyline and simple analogies used to explain the parts of the brain vying for control of the body are wonderfully suited to the level of young children with Asperger’s syndrome.
