My childrens book raising awareness of invisible illnesses and mental health issues.

Rodney Meadow-Hopper tells the story in gentle rhyme about a hare who seems grumpy and doesn't want to play. The truth is that Rodney has a hidden illness and he is too frightened to tell his friends.
My story encourages children to be honest about what they are feeling and hopefully be able to express themselves from a young age.
I wanted to show that it would be alright when Rodney tells his friends and he would feel much happier.
I have been inspired by my own daughter's chronic illness (she has Crohns disease) and I wanted to spread the word that it's OK not to be OK.
