Jasper's Story – Living with Cystic Fibrosis

By Andy Glynne

  • Hardback
  • £12.99

Real-life testimonies of young people living with illness. Originally made as a series of animated films for the BBC, these books explore the experiences of young people who are dealing with different illnesses

This powerful and eye opening picture book uses the first-person testimony of Jasper, a 10-year-old boy with cystic fibrosis. Jasper explains what his condition is, the treatment he receives and the emotional challenges he faces.

Using Jasper's real first-person testimony creates an intimate and direct tone that will help students to empathise with people's differences. Jasper's circumstances are easily relatable to children; he talks about school, his brother, friends, his hobbies and explains the complications that cystic fibrosis brings to these situations.

The BAFTA award-winning stories were originally produced as animations for the BBC. Aimed at children aged 9 and up, these powerful and evocative stories have now been captured in book form as rich, visual testimonies of the impact an illness has on a child's daily life and how they cope and are able to enjoy the life that they have.
