Melissa's Story - Living with HIV+

Andy Glynne
Authors:
Andy Glynne

This powerful and eye opening picture book uses the first-person testimony of Melissa, a child living with HIV. Melissa explains what HIV is, how she was diagnosed, the medication she takes and the physical effect of the virus. We read about her fear of telling people and the stigma that made her feel early on that her condition must be kept secret. Melissa explores everyday relatable circumstances; school, family and talks in depth about her friendships. The open and clear text encourages students to empathise with other children's differences and recognises the similarities between their own lives and hers. 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.

But it's snowing, and visibility is bad, and the car goes off the road, and crashes. Mouse is thrown from the car. When he wakes, he's not in his world any more. He meets a sheep named Bar, who can only say Baaa, and a sarcastic horse named Nonky, who is a surprising mix of his beloved toy horse and his older sister.So begins a quest to find a castle in a world of wonder - a world of monsters, minstrels, dangerous knights and mysterious wizards; a world of terrifying danger but also more excitement than Mouse has ever known.But why are they looking for a castle? As the cold grows, we realise it might just have something to do with the family he's left behind; and that Mouse's quest is more important than ever. This is a novel about love and death. It's about the power of stories to change the way we view the world - and it's about the power of a child to change their own world. Emotionally arresting but ultimately uplifting, this is a remarkable novel for our times.
