How to explain the onset of diabetes to children who have recently been diagnosed?

Jill Morris tackles this question via a birthday party story. Dido is a diprotodon (a prehistoric Australian mammal) a character with whom readers of any sex or any age can identify. Dido is a star at athletics, rowing and gymnastics - but has to cope with diabetes. Not wanting to hurt Dido's feelings, the Donaldson family decides not to hold Imogen's birthday party - but Dido has other plans.

A positive story which carries extensive information about diabetes and entertains with clear, colourful illustrations. Best for 6-10 year-olds. Read Aloud or Independent Readers.
