The Great Katie Kate Tackles Questions About Cancer

When young Suzy is told she might have cancer, the Great Katie Kate swoops in to help Suzy understand cancer, biopsies, X-rays, and other tests, and what kinds of things to expect as grownups help her get well. Katie Kate’s strategy for fighting the big scary Worry Wombat is simple: “If you ask enough questions and smile whenever you can, the Worry Wombat will shrink and disappear.” The author, a radiation oncologist, specializes in working with children and women with cancer, and this book is the first in an intended series of books about medical issues. Straightforward and optimistic, with happy illustrations. For ages three to five.
