Dominic has asthma, and in this story about Dom and his best friend Matt, we hear about the band they play in and the normal activities the boys share. Colour photographs and information boxes help the flow of the story, which is a simple one: the boys go to a band practice, where Dom is able to overcome a tight chest; at home afterwards, Dom shows Matt his 'preventer' and 'reliever' puffers, and then in the night Dom has an attack, which Matt handles calmly with the help of mum. There is a page of facts about asthma, a short glossary, a list of ways to be helpful, and some useful addresses. Positive, but honest.
