Grade 1-3-Julia, a young girl with Crohn's disease, tells her friend that when she sits on the toilet for a long time she constructs toilet-paper flowers to make herself feel better. This launches a discussion between the two girls about how painful, depressing, and embarrassing the condition is. While the author, who suffers from the disease, is an expert in gastroenterology, his attempt to explain it to children is unsuccessful. The writing is stilted, and the illustrations are static, featuring two orange-tinted, very wide-eyed girls. While well-intentioned, this title misses the mark.-Christine A. Moesch, City of Tonawanda Public Library, NY
