Synopsis

My Mum's Got Cancer by Dr. Lucy Blunt, Petrea King

My Mum's Got Cancer is a picture book with a difference: it provides information and practical advice to children at a time when they are frightened and need reassurance. Author Dr Lucy Blunt is a clinical psychologist, mother and breast cancer survivor and knows first-hand the fears and experiences involved in telling children that Mummy has cancer. The book is honest, clear and often humorous and offers support and comfort to children and is an invaluable resource to their family, school and the wider community. Eloise Osborn is an 11 year old girl whose Mum wrote this book and she volunteered to do the illustrations so that other children can learn about what it is like to have a mother and family who go through breast cancer treatment.

About the Author

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
