About the Author

Leneille Moon is a mother of a toddler with multiple food allergies who wrote this book to spread the word about Food Allergies in hopes to increase awareness about their effect on children. Her eldest son Braylon was diagnosed with multiple severe food allergies at the tender age of 5 months after a single bite of buttered mashed potatoes that sent him into anaphylactic shock. Her mission is to encourage children with any disability to embrace their condition and be able to share their experiences with their peers encouraging open discussion about food and the way we interact with one another.

My 1st grader loves this book!
Amazon Customer
This book explains it from the child's perspective in a way that other children can understand and how a child who deals with this feels.

This book is a must have for children of all ages. I love the fact it teaches tolerance for differences, as well as inspiring confidence in children that may suffer from food allergies. It's a very easy read, but cleverly written. I can't wait for more in this series..

My daughter is allergic to Dairy, Egg and Tree Nuts. This book was a great book to show her and her Kindergarten class that she may have allergies but is still a normal little child just like everyone else.

This book is amazing! I don't have children with allergies but I am a person sensitive to all the needs of children. This book is a great way to teach children about allergies and allergic reactions. Especially if they have never had to deal with them! Look forward to much more from the author!

Two big things I did not like about this book...

1. Patty's parents seemingly did nothing to prepare her for going to school with a food allergy. At the end of the book, her teacher gives her a food allergy bracelet. They were also clueless that she was worried about going to school.

2. Patty is magically, instantly felt better with the EpiPen and leaves school at the end of the day.... You need to go to the hospital EVERY time you use the EpiPen!! That really irritated me.

That being said, my 5 year old son said he liked the story and it did get us talking. He was able to tell his daddy the two things I didn't like when he got home from work. My son has 13 food allergies and I have a few of my own... We love kids books, especially ones about food allergies. This wasn't our favorite, but we will be keeping it on our bookshelf. It does drive home the message that it's important to speak up for yourself about your food allergies.

Leneille Moon has a fresh approach to encouraging kids who have allergies. She puts her message into the mouths of animal characters, mainly Patty, a pig whose twin brother teases her. Too embarrassed to speak up about her need to avoid certain foods, Patty Pig suffers the consequences of itching and swelling, Fortunately, by the end of the tale, she grows wiser. With an Appendix of typical allergy foods and a puzzle, Leneille's book qualifies as educational fiction, an important genre that informs readers while they also have fun along the way.
