Zack has asthma, but it doesn't stop him from living a full life, including football and other sports. All his family are asthma sufferers, so we get lots of information about keeping the house free of house dust mites. Zack shows us the special equipment he needs and how to use his peak flow meter and his various inhalers. A good introduction to what it is like to live with asthma. The photographs, while staged, are interesting and helpful, and the fact that Zack and his family and friends are real people adds to the positive ethos. The usual index, glossary and list of helpful organisations will make the book useful in schools.
