'This excellent book explains what eczema is in language a child can understand, which will in turn make it easier for them to live a full and confident life...Eczema may be challenging but it does not have to control our lives. By telling their story in such an accessible and engaging manner Julie and Helen are helping millions of children living with eczema and I am truly grateful to them.'
