My 3 year old daughter has just had her tonsils and adenoids removed. I wanted a book to discuss what was going to happen to her, in preparation for the big day of the operation. This book did provide an excellent discussion point and helped my daughter to feel confident about what was about to happen to her, without been lied to. However, the story does go on a bit and could have done with been a little more concise.

We bought this when my son was due to have his tonsils out. I can only recommend it. It prepared him for what was to come and he even impressed the nurse with his knowledge (apparently many children arrive totally unprepared and have no clue what will happen to them).

Ideal for my just turned seven year old who was going in for a tonsillectomy. Explains the procedure well ( although it's American!) and prepares the child well for the operation. I agree with other reviewers that it's long, but fine for an older child. I would recommend.

Helped demystify the operation and the hospital process slightly. However is very American and doesn't fully relate to the UK hospital system. I wouldn't recommend

I decided to buy this book as my 4 year old daughter was having her tonsils out. I found the book to be too long to hold her interest. I also purchased the book 'My first visit to the hospital'. This book was a lot better and more appropriate for her age group.

This book was a great aid to help prepare my 4 year old daughter for her tonsils and adenoids to be removed. As some reviewers have stated, as this is an American book some information is more relevant than others, but explained everything in simple terms and took away a lot of the fear, as she knew what to expect in advance. She also carried out numerous tonsillectomies on her toys in preparation. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent book and just what is needed to prepare my grandson for his upcoming operation. His favourite part is the party which he is really looking forward to.
