|Key character: The 'spacer' for use by young children with an inhaler (spot the magic hat)|
So, a bit more about each of the new titles:
Sandra the Spacer and her Magic Hat
One in 11 children in the UK has asthma, so perhaps it was no surprise when specialist asthma staff asked us to get involved in introducing the 'spacer', used with an inhaler by young children. We spent several afternoons in the waiting room of the asthma clinic, talking to children of all ages about their experiences and getting some of their character and story ideas down on paper. Many of these ideas made it into the final book.
|Sandra the Spacer joins the toy basket but soon finds that, like the Blue Kazoo and Tara the Trumpet, the little girl never chooses her. Can Sandra's magic hat help?|
|Key character: Peakflow meter (introduced in the story as 'Mr Peakflow', an over-enthusiastic PE teacher blowing his whistle and shouting 'breathe-ho!')|
|Why has Leopold got yellow teeth, and why is he saying 'ow' instead of growling properly?|
