When Auckland mum Simone Colwill was diagnosed with Crohn's disease, she knew she had a problem to solve. How could she teach her kids about day-to-day ward life? Her first book, 'What Does Super Jonny Do When Mom Gets Sick?' used a little superhero, Super Jonny, to teach families about hospitals and empower them to help. 'I decided Super Jonny needed centre-stage in another story.' She explains, 'Super Jonny knows the ward, so in ward 17 he shows the reader around. This book is the second instalment in my Super Jonny series. Like the first story, this book also includes a question page for teachers and families to consider how to help someone in hospital.' But she didn't just leave it there. Determined to show her mettle as a writer, Simone wrote this story in rhyme! 'I think if an author is serious about their writing then it's important to use different styles. My first book was a traditional superhero story, this one has a catchy rhythm. It could be the world's first hospital-based story in rhyme!'
