About two percent of children and teenagers are made miserable by Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Families suffer too. The symptoms feel strange and many children are so frightened and ashamed that they keep secret what is happening to them but they often get into trouble because of their rituals and concerns.
It is very important for families and children to seek help because the problem can cause major disability if allowed to develop unchecked and there are effective treatments. The text of the book is very simple and the drawings are clear and bring the symptoms and solutions to life. This book will be very valuable to children with OCD and, although it is a book for children, it can also help adults who have OCD understand their disorder better.
