About the Author
John Priest has been writing for children since 1985. He has two daughters and lives with his wife in the UK. Most of his time is now spent with his wife and their five grandchildren, telling them stories, playing and acting like a five-year-old. This story is based around the real-life events of Jack, his eldest grandson, who was diagnosed with Polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, Uveitis and Hypermobility at the age of four. A difficult and tough two years later, Jack is winning most of his battles with the illness. He goes to Hospital on a regular basis and at just six years of age, is fully prepared for his examinations. Jack and John hope that this book helps your own child's visits to Hospital, and that both you and your child can use the story and tips to make your trip to Hospital less stressful.

Books to help children and their families cope with being in the hospital are very important. It happens to many families, but rarely "yours." It's scary and unfamiliar for everyone.
This book is very positive. I wish proper terms for bodily functions were used throughout, but the tests were honestly described and encouraging.
The story itself is followed with a guide for items to bring. This is very helpful, although we add a few to the list as well (such as vending machine change, charging cords, toiletries).
It also contains some simple games for children to keep them entertained. This is an excellent addition.
The author provided me with a digital ARC copy of the book for review purposes only. No remuneration was exchanged.
