About the Author
Please note that the following description is provided by the publisher/author of this title and presents the subjective opinions of the publisher/author, which may not be substantiated. The description does not express the views of Amazon.
The author/publisher writes: "Melanie's Marvelous Measles was written to educate children on the benefits of having measles and how you can heal from them naturally and successfully. Often today, we are being bombarded with messages from vested interests to fear all diseases in order for someone to sell some potion or vaccine, when, in fact, history shows that in industrialized countries, these diseases are quite benign and, according to natural health sources, beneficial to the body. Having raised three children vaccine-free and childhood disease-free, I have experienced many times when my children's vaccinated peers succumb to the childhood diseases they were vaccinated against. Surprisingly, there were times when my unvaccinated children were blamed for their peers' sickness. Something which is just not possible when they didn't have the diseases at all. Stephanie Messenger lives in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, and devotes her life to educating people about vaccine dangers and supporting families in their natural health choices. She has the support of many natural therapists and natural-minded doctors."

We live in a free society, right? Dangerous idiots can print what they like.
The only problem is when their published stupidity can lead to other imbeciles committing violence against children.
Isn't there a law against hate speech? There must be. Just in case, you can witness that I tempered my initial remarks.
Letting children suffer easily preventable harm is called "negligence" and it is, indeed, a crime.
So, don't shoot this Stephanie Messenger, please don't. Give all the shots to your kids.
PS: Found this cute picture of a possible Melanie, a few days later...
Other commonly confused "illnesses" which are actually all psychological are also available in brightly coloured paper back for the, let's call them "people", who enjoy this literature. My favourite one in this series is "Broken bones don't bend" which delves into the fallacy that when you have a broken bone you can't use it - in fact you're just lazy, sinful and heretical. This is followed closely by "Sneeze all you want and don't wash your hands" which explores the fact that when you sneeze it's just a bit of your soul escaping, so there is no reason to worry about hygiene.
Fortunately; this person and her bloodline will soon be dead taking their defective genes with them. Actually, there's a book on how genes don't exist and those are just a figment of your imagination. You're not even real, how are you reading this review? This isn't real, you know. There is a conspiracy and I have been locked in this room with no way out for uncovering it. Writing reviews on Amazon is the only way I can tell you the truth - that there is no measles. Just like there is no spoon.
But perhaps the author of this ill-informed and potentially dangerous book should have read what Roald Dahl said about vaccinations:
"Here in Britain, because so many parents refuse, either out of obstinacy or ignorance or fear, to allow their children to be immunised, we still have a hundred thousand cases of measles every year. Out of those, more than 10,000 will suffer side effects of one kind or another. At least 10,000 will develop ear or chest infections. About 20 will die. LET THAT SINK IN. Every year around 20 children will die in Britain from measles. So what about the risks that your children will run from being immunised? They are almost non-existent. Listen to this. In a district of around 300,000 people, there will be only one child every 250 years who will develop serious side effects from measles immunisation! That is about a million to one chance. I should think there would be more chance of your child choking to death on a chocolate bar than of becoming seriously ill from a measles immunisation. So what on earth are you worrying about? It really is almost a crime to allow your child to go unimmunised. The ideal time to have it done is at 13 months, but it is never too late. All school-children who have not yet had a measles immunisation should beg their parents to arrange for them to have one as soon as possible. Incidentally, I dedicated two of my books to Olivia, the first was James and the Giant Peach'. That was when she was still alive. The second was 'The BFG', dedicated to her memory after she had died from measles. You will see her name at the beginning of each of these books. And I know how happy she would be if only she could know that her death had helped to save a good deal of illness and death among other children."
Yes, that's right, Stephanie: Roald Dahl's daughter DIED aged seven from the measles you believe is so harmless. Unfortunately, many, many other children have died as well.
It's you who needs to educate yourself properly and stop spreading dangerous nonsense and lies about diseases and vaccines.
Stephanie: please do everyone a favour and withdraw this book from sale before any parent even thinks about taking your advice - advice that they may later regret.
