How wonderful to have a team of physicians and supporters that have come up with such an exceptional, `out of box' approach that helps both children and adults alike to understand Celiac. Amy Goes Gluten-Free, A Young Person's Guide to Celiac Disease does an excellent job of addressing that total overwhelming feeling one gets upon finding out that our child(ren) has been diagnosed with Celiac Disease and the seemingly drastic dietary restrictions. This comic book is a great way of providing direction and tips on how to adjust to a gluten free diet. It's a cute story line intermixed with fun activities that explains and reinforces the importance of staying gluten free to remain healthy. Introducing GF Holmes as a gluten-free detective is an insightful idea that appropriately gives those with Celiac the techniques to identify unwanted gluten.

Our family has followed a gluten free lifestyle for 15 years and we've read and bought many books on Celiac but this is the first inexpensive comic geared toward helping a young child understand and accept this lifelong disease. It is comprehensive in its content so parents can learn to adjust to this lifestyle, current for today's knowledge level about the disease and positive in its message. The Children's Hospital Boston was there for our family 15 years ago at the forefront of support and education. This book shows that they continue to be there for our children. Thank you team!

My ten yo loved it! She like the plot and pictures and I like the in depth explanation. It was a great way to explain what gluten dues to the body and how to avoid it. It went a little long and in depth , so we had to break it into several days, but I loved it!

I have read a lot of books on Celiac Disease, but this Comic Book gives a very concise explanation of the ins and outs of this misunderstood condition. It is written for ANYONE, young or old, to learn about Celiac Disease.

The Doctors at Boston Children's Hospital have done a GREAT job on this Comic Book. I wish I had something like this when my daughter was first diagnosed with CD .

I do a lot of research about celiac for my site ([...]) and encountered some info about this comic book a while ago. Today my daughter's doctor at Children's Hospital gave her a copy of the comic book. I think that this is a great publication both because kids will read it and because it's factual and helpful information. In addition to the story there are puzzles and activities. I HIGHLY recommend it.

I'm a huge fan of Joe Staton's work on DC Comic's Justice Society/All Star and Green Lantern books. How nice to see Joe and Hilarie team up for an entertaining and informative book that will appeal to and educate children and parents. This work will not only stand the test of time but make a difference. Nice Job!
