The Elephant in the Room Series

This series of books addresses issues often left unspoken about to young children. Whilst the topics are “tough” they are too important to avoid.

The First title; The Disappearing Sister, is aimed at providing a platform by which discussion may be started in a guided environment to help young children understand the nature of the impact of an Eating Disorder illness. The story helps families identify how the whole family is needed to help their loved one on the long road of their recovery to full health.
