Editorial Reviews

The book is very impressive indeed; beautifully developed story - a serious theme made so alive and funny for children, yet preserved the sensitivity. The illustrations are alluring and lively. Going through the book was an experience; really felt I had spent some time with Sydney, Emma and all. Dr. Ren Chats, Children Health Explanation
