Something is stirring in the dinosaur jungle – it’s Itchy-saurus. His itchy, scratchy skin is making him bad-tempered. Can Doc Bill (the Platypus) help Itchy to calm down – perhaps with some lovely soothing cream? Rosie Wellesley’s latest book is a tale packed with jokes and fun (and dinosaurs), but it also addresses a serious issue.

Although we do not know if dinosaurs had eczema, 20% of children do, and this book is perfect for reassuring them that they are not alone. Eczema Outreach Support: ‘”EOS send The Itchy-saurus to children with eczema and we hear regularly how much they like it! It helps the family to talk about eczema and the child to become more engaged with their condition.”
