A funny, body-positive look at puberty for girls

Girls today are learning about and going through puberty at a younger age than ever before. Don't Panic, It's Puberty! offers a positive, reassuring look at the main changes that they will go through during puberty both physically and emotionally - from hair sprouting in unexpected places to spots, growth spurts, tiredness and mood swings.

The funny, cartoon-style illustrations keep the tone light but are anatomically accurate and show a range of real body types, encouraging inclusivity and self-acceptance. Perfect reading for children aged 8+.

The text and illustrations have been reviewed by a qualified medical doctor.
