This book describes some of the more unusual cases in forty years of practice as a general paediatrician.
Children should never fall ill apart for childhood infections, but they do. the range of illnesses that they may suffer from is seemingly endless. These stories are fascinating: funny, sad, peculiar and even outrageous.
Every clinical event is true but, to preserve confidentiality, the names, places, occupations and behaviours have all been invented.
The book will entertain, educate and, admittedly, also air some of the author's own prejudices. The children's stories will make you laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time. Enjoy!
