Babies need books too.


Baby Ruby is enjoying the pictures … just checking on the title.


…and following the story.


Great Dawn, well done can’t wait for the others. Shall be reading it to my twin grandsons when they a bit older. I love the illustrations as well.

I had an uncle with Parkinson’s when I was little, he was one of the first people to go to Scotland and have brain surgery, I found it quite frightening to be with him, I couldn’t understand his speech and if we went out he would walk faster and faster and not be able to stop.

Only wish your books had been around then for me.

Brilliant, brilliant brilliant.”
Jane Jackson – Teaching Assistant

Mary and Madeleine“Both my daughter, Madeleine (aged 5), and I love this book by Dawn May. The writing is both eloquent and perfectly pitched to open up what could have been a difficult conversation about Madeleine’s grandma’s Parkinson’s. The illustrations are beautiful with lots of details for us to pick out.

We see a lot of my mum and Madeleine is aware that Grandma can’t do all the things she’d love to with Madeleine but up until now she didn’t really understand why. The book allowed us to talk about ‘good’ and ‘bad’ days and the fact that, despite Grandma having Parkinson’s, it is a hindrance rather than a barrier to everything; she is still Madeleine’s grandma and she still has a lot of love, laughter, and life, to share with Madeleine.”

Mary Williamson, daughter of person with Parkinson’s

“I really like the simplicity of your book.  I think it’s amazing you have done this in such a short time”

Elaine G, person with Parkinson’s

“It arrived this morning. Really good, hardly a dry eye in the house. Reminded me of the best picture books I read to the boys when they were little”

Roger S, Bristol

“This book is simply excellent”
David Cottrell – consultant neurologist

Paul Williams – Editor – Parkinson’s Branch Lines magazines
