Bridget is an A-grade student and star of the school soccer team... But her mum just doesn't seem to care. She just stays in bed all day, ignoring her daughter. All of Bridget s successes seem empty without her mum's support. Luckily the Medikidz, a group of super-powered action-heroes with attitude, are on-hand to help Bridget get to grips with what's going on! Pump, Chi, Skinderella, Gastro, Axon and trusty robot Abacus each have their own complementary abilities and characters to ensure that their particular brand of edu-tainment is always banter-driven and never sugar-sweet! Join Bridget as the Medikidz take her on a whistle-stop tour of Mediland a distant planet whose geography and inhabitants bear a striking similarity to the intricacies of human anatomy and physiology. Along the way she'll learn all about breast cancer and come to understand and appreciate what her mother is going through. The Medikidz range of graphic novels explains childhood illness in a way that is imaginative, engaging and easy to understand. Developed by a team of doctors, Medikidz does not try to 'sugarcoat' serious problems. Rather, the information provided empowers children with the knowledge they need to take ownership of their disease, providing them with skills for selfmanagement, while taking away their fear of the unknown.
