Feedback from Shaun:
My favourite character is Skinderella, she can turn into a skeleton and she helps with the skin and bones - she is a skin and bones specialist.  She has a funny name though!   This is about superheros who help children with asthma, and is told in a child friendly way.  I enjoyed the characters.

The comic is extremely colourful and eye catching throughout.  Readers can identify with the superheroes easily.  Shaun was in fits of giggles most of the way through reading this because of Gastro's antics and bodily functions, which should appeal to most children!  The characters are fun and enable readers to be light heartened whilst giving them a serious message about asthma and the way it effects those with it.

The information within it's pages are well researched and set out in a way that's more acceptable for children to understand and learn from.
