Jake and Tammy live in Canterbury Place. Together with their friends, family and neighbours they have lots to learn about life and the world they live in, particularly about health and sickness.

During their adventures we, too, want to know the answers to the questions that Tammy and Jake ask. In a loving context their Mum and Dad tell them what they need to know about why people fall ill and what we can, and should, do to help. Together they discover the loyalty, forgiveness and love that we all search after.

Moving, thoughtful, delightful - these books will both entertain & educate.

Canterbury Place is the fictional setting for a series of books exploring deep issues. This is a great book for a child who has come across a serious illness for the first time in themselves, a friend or relative or who is perhaps learning more about what it is to care for others.

We keep hearing about children's health, eating habits, and levels of exercise. I often think about the poor advice I received as a youngster regarding what was considered then to be a 'healthy diet.' We can get obsessed with things, but more often than not today our children haven't a clue about what health means for them and how God wants them to use their bodies to glorify him. I hope this book goes some way to helping children to focus on a healthy lifestyle in what is a healthy way. I also hope that I really do practice what I write :-)
