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.
