Literature that deals with the subject of allergies in an age-appropriate way for pre-schoolers can be difficult to source. That was certainly Josie Warbuton’s experience when her own daughter was diagnosed as anaphylactic, so she decided to come up with her own series of books to help youngsters understand the implications of this potentially daunting condition. Freddy the Mouse doesn’t have allergies himself, but in each book he meets a fellow creature who does (in this case, a squirrel who reacts to nuts), and together they learn the essential things to remember; what to do in an emergency; and perhaps most importantly of all, that having a limited diet needn’t mean leading a limited life.
