About the Author:

Craig M. Hatkoff is an American philanthropist and author from New York City. He is a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Institute and the Tribeca Film Festival.

Marilyn Mets has been working as an illustrator, art director, and graphic designer for more than 25 years. She has illustrated and collaborated on numerous children's books, and her work has garnered many awards and nominations, including a nomination for the Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbons Illustrator's Award in 1998 for her work on Cameron and Me.

Juliana Hatkoff is the daughter of philanthropist and author Craig Hatkoff and has written many children’s books with him, including Winter’s Tail, Leo the Snow Leopard, and Good-bye Tonsils!

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-4-Juliana has had a series of sore throats, and her doctor decides to remove her tonsils. She works up to the pending procedure by reading books and talking with a friend who has had multiple operations. The night before the ordeal, the family celebrates with a party. The authors work slowly through the day of the tonsillectomy, breaking down the schedule of events and acknowledging the child's fear. Readers follow her through recovery; she leaves the hospital in the afternoon and mends at home for a few days. The story ends on a high note with Juliana telling her friends about the experience, including the ice cream she was able to eat as well as being afraid. The authors include all the necessary information regarding a tonsillectomy in a comforting yet straightforward story. "A Note to Parents" lists basic guidelines for preparing a child for surgery. Mets's full-color illustrations aptly reflect the mood of the text. Most reassuring is the visual connection between Juliana and her father just before she undergoes anesthesia. Not as many children have their tonsils removed today as in the past, but this book is a good choice for those who face this experience.
