About my Dream
Hi, I'm Wendy, the creator of the Mediwonderland Book Series. It has long been my dream to write these books, not to profit but to benefit children and parents across the globe who are facing medical procedures and circumstances that can be very frightening.
Inspiration for this came from my experience 14 years ago, taking care of my daughter who spent a year in hospital and underwent major surgery at age 8. She had to go through a lot of invasive procedures such as a bone marrow biopsy and a splenectomy. I couldn't find anything as a mother to support her through stories using child-friendly language. As she herself says in the short video 'Katie's Story', it would have made the entire experience so much easier.
It is only because of my own life threatening illness that I have been able to make this series a reality. (See 'Twist in the Tale' below).
Aim of the Series
This series aims to make medical procedures less frightening for children all around the world. It will address everything from simple medical procedures to illnesses, and also situations such as bullying, abuse and psychological issues such as PTSD. Children see things very differently than adults and the simplest of tests can be very frightening.
