Everyone hates going to the doctor – taking their medicine, having their temperature taken, maybe having to go for sugery. None of it’s any fun.
This collection of poems and rhymes helps to make being sick a little less scary, with poems about broken bones, the chickenpox, having an injection and many more – with characters that will make young readers smile and laugh.
Children can sing along to Owen’s Broken Bone Blues, meet Ultan Ulrich Ultrasound – the man who can look right into your insides with his magical powers – and Eliza Analyser, who looks at all your cells under the microscope.
Translated from Latvian and retold for the English market by award-winning Irish poet Catherine Ann Cullen.
