Johnny is different. He is never exactly on time, he can't seem to stick to a routine and he often speaks in cryptic idioms. Johnny is neurotypical, but that's OK.

A picture book with a difference, Why Johnny Doesn't Flap turns the tables on common depictions of neurological difference by drolly revealing how people who are not on the autistic spectrum are perceived by those who are. The autistic narrator's bafflement at his neurotypical friend's quirks shows that 'normal' is simply a matter of perspective.

An absolutely wonderful novel from the perspective of an autist who wants to explain the differences between himself and his neurotypical friend. A way for children and adults alike to appreciate how people's brains work differently by nature, and that's okay! One is not better or worse than any other. Great message and fun story.
