Meet Mollie - a woman with an illness called ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) or CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), and her family, Mike, Ellie and Eric. Mollie and her family help readers to understand what ME/CFS is, what it is like to have it and how it can affect their family life. Mollie can't always do things that other mums do because of her illness, which can sometimes be frustrating, but they share strategies that help them all to cope. The family also explain how ME/CFS can affect different people in different ways.

This illustrated book is an ideal introduction to this often misunderstood condition. It shows family, friends and anyone who knows someone with the condition how they can support someone with ME/CFS, and their family.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book is very clear and easy to read. It is a great resource that can be used by ME patients and their carers to explain and inform others what it is like to be affected by ME/CFS. Not only children but adult relatives, friends and teachers would learn a great deal from this book. -- Kathleen McCall, Chairman, Invest in ME
This is a user friendly book... It explains simply and in words that even quite young children will understand, what it is like to have ME, and what it is like to have a person with ME in the family. The layout is very clear, with text on one page and eye-catching cartoon illustrations on the facing page... This is a very good introduction to the subject and very comprehensive... Every doctors' surgery should have a copy in its waiting room. -- Mark Edwards * New Nurturing Potential/Potential Unleasehed *
This book is a detailed explanation of the different symptoms that can be suffered when one has ME... The story is told by a mother (Molly) and her two children (Ellie and Eric)...She goes into some detail about the various symptoms that people with ME/CFG can have... The information is good, the black and white illustrations are helpful, and the list of organisations at the back of the book is extensive - it covers many countries. There is a list of acronyms which could prove very useful, and there is also advice for teachers who may have children with problems due to a parent's illness. This book will be very helpful to children and adults alike, and as children can also suffer from this debilitating disease, they will find the information useful too. An excellent introduction to the problems that ME/CFG can cause. -- Healthy Books blog
