Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This photographic journal about a child's battle with cancer covers the experience from diagnosis through surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. The feelings and thoughts associated with cancer treatment are described, and the pictures reflect Andrew's experiences. This is an excellent book for children who have cancer or for their friends who are trying to understand it. 2001, Lerner Publications Company, $15.95. Ages 5 to 10. Reviewer: S. Latson SOURCE: Parent Council, September 2001 (Vol. 9, No. 1)
Children's Literature
The account begins with a photograph of a nine-year-old boy who is playing in the sand by the ocean. He introduces himself as Andrew, and then tells the story of how he got and how he beat Wilms' Tumor, a rare childhood cancer. Quickly the story reverts back some six years, to the time when his first symptoms of a sore neck and an enlarged stomach appeared. Then, after diagnosis, Andrew is plunged into a world of technicians and tests, medicines and sicknesses, and pain and sadness. Months later, when all medicines and tests are finished, Andrew is told he is cancer-free. But more than that, Andrew has been a winner and an inspiration to his older brother and to many others. While interesting and informative, the text overruns at times with more-than-needed medical information for young readers. Additionally, the photographs depict little action and expression, an interest factor that most photo essays demand. Even so, Andrew's victory over cancer warms the heart and sends a message of strength and hope to those who may be entering the same arena. 2002, Lerner Publications, $21.27. Ages 5 to 9. Reviewer: Patricia Timbrook
School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-This account of survival of childhood cancer is told in the voice of nine-year-old Andrew Bridge. When he was three, he was diagnosed with Wilms' tumor. Surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy followed, and today he is cancer-free. Andrew is honest about the inconvenience and discomfort involved in treatment, but he doesn't dwell on them. He is also honest about the conflicting emotions he experienced. Photographs of the child taken during his hospital stays accompany the text. Some are quite small. In fact, the overall design is disappointing in several ways, notably the drawing of a mournful face of a puppy that appears on many pages throughout the book. Melanie Gordon's Let's Talk about When Kids Have Cancer (Rosen, 1999) is a more straightforward approach to the topic. Despite its visual flaws, Andrew's Story will be reassuring to children who have cancer themselves or who have friends with the disease.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
