The internationally acclaimed, fantastically unusual detective story written from the perspective of an autistic boy will reach an even wider audience in this specially repackaged edition for young readers.Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He relates well to animals but finds it hard to understand other people. When he discovers the suspicious death of a neighbourhood dog, he decides to solve the mystery and write a detective thriller about it. As in all good detective stories, however, the more he unearths, the deeper the mystery gets–for both Christopher and the rest of his family.

3.0 Het wonderbaarlijke voorval met de hond in de nacht
Dit boek is geschreven vanuit het oogpunt van een jongen met asperger.Ik heb het in één middag uitgelezen, en hoewel het fascinerend was om te zien hoe een autist de wereld beleefd, was het ook vermoeiend.Leuk boek, makkelijk te lezen.
