This graphic novel series isn't just for kids.

It also helps some adults or adolescents to answer questions.

“Schattenspringer” is definitely recommended for anyone who wants to deal with the topic of autism.

The fascinating story of a not quite ordinary girl!

Daniela Schreiter - comic artist, author and illustrator from Berlin - describes her childhood and youth in an entertaining and touching way in the graphic novel "Schattenspringer - How it is to be different".

Even as a little girl, she behaved differently from other girls her age - incomprehensible to those around her, until she was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, a special form of autism.

People with Asperger's sometimes feel like they come from another planet.

From puberty: Daniela Schreiter "Schattenspringer 2"

Puberty itself is a challenge for every adolescent.

But what does this difficult phase of life look like for autistic people?

Daniela Schreiter's "Schattenspringer 2" addresses this very question.

The second part of "Schattenspringer" deals mainly with adolescence, the long farewell to childhood and the even longer road to adulthood (I'm not quite sure if I've arrived yet, at least I haven't yet sign discovered).

As a result, the topics have also grown up.

While the first part was mainly about my childhood on the autistic spectrum, this time it's mainly about puberty...

Stories from other autistic people: Daniela Schreiter "Schattenspringer 3"

If we are honest with ourselves, we either don't know anyone or just one autistic person.

But just as depression and other disorders affect people differently, so does autism.

"Schattenspringer 3" by Daniela Schreiter illuminates the lives of other autistic people.

"Anyone who knows an autistic person knows exactly ONE autistic person," says Daniela Schreiter in the third volume of Schattenspringer.

She sets out to interview other sufferers.

As always, she combines this with her own experiences and once again manages to explain a seemingly taboo topic in a wonderfully entertaining way, without slipping into stories of suffering or being instructive.
