With illustrations throughout, this will be an ideal introduction to OCD for both young people and older readers.

The Can I tell you about . . . series offers simple introductions to a range of limiting conditions. Friendly characters invite readers to learn about their experiences of living with a particular condition and how they would like to be helped and supported. These books serve as excellent starting points for family and classroom discussions.
