Laurie and Lewis are best friends. They share everything. Then one day, Lewis shares his cookie and Laurie has an allergic reaction.
Will their friendship ever be the same?
This story helps children understand allergies and learn how to keep themselves and their friends safe.
“This book is a great introduction to allergies for young children and I would recommend it in the classroom and for families who have just received an allergy diagnosis.” Dr Helen Brough, consultant in Paediatric Allergy and Immunology
"The story of Laurie's first allergen exposure and allergy journey echoes our own. The storyline is clear, pertinent and very inclusive. Almost every allergy family will have experienced exactly the same issues of the initial exposure, dealing with others lack of understanding, bullying and finding a new way forwards with support from true friends. The characters are relatable likable and I really felt the emotions. I am sure the kids that this is aimed at will relate to them. The information is clear and well laid out. The learning points are spot on.
This is a lovely book that I would have loved to have been able to use when my boy was young (he’s almost 15 now). It clearly shows the journey we allergy families go on and how friends and family can help those kids with allergies cope with the challenges they face along the way." AllergyDad @fiacloir1
