What is it like for a mother to try to help her daughter, who has become addicted to pain-relieving drugs following a series of devastating operations, recover from her addiction? That is the story this book tells in a slightly novelized treatment of an altogether true story. While occurring a half-century ago, it portrays, in a vividly moving, cinema-like narrative, the challenge thousands of parents face today. Sobering--in some ways terrifying--Irma O'Conor's story is, at the same time, filled with hope, courage and love.
This delightful introduction to numbers and counting uses characters and object from the iconic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. From 'One White Rabbit for Alice to follow' to 'Five grins from the Cheshire Cat', and 'Nine tarts made by the Queen', this is a really charming book. The traditional illustrations are by Sir John Tenniel, supplemented by additional pictures in Tenniel's style and beautiful Victorian-style decorative motifs. This is a really special book for young children and together with A is for Alice - An Alphabet Book, forms a very classy introduction to the classic Alice.
