"Nurse Ted is an excellent resource to help a carer mediate the diagnosis of a brain tumour with a child. There can be nothing more difficult than talking with a child about what it means to have a brain tumour. This book, with its beautiful illustrations and clarity of language, makes this less daunting. It's a gift to any adult who is living with this diagnosis."  

Brainstrust, The Brain Cancer People.   

"We are proud to support Nurse Ted. Children whose parents are affected by a brain tumour can face a difficult and uncertain time and there has been a lack of information for them to help them understand what is happening. Nurse Ted will be a very helpful resource for families in future."

The Brain Tumour Charity.
