When Anna Came to Stay

When Anna Came to Stay

When Anna Came to Stay

May is a carefree girl who likes nothing better than singing along to the Spice Girls, roller blading and eating cheese on toast with her friends. But then May’s family moves to a new town and May’s world is turned upside down. Out of the blue, an imaginary friend Anna comes along to help May out of her predicament, but Anna’s ‘solutions’ only isolate May from her family and lead her into unhealthy habits. Author Maddy Tyers knows only too well the pressures faced by children who become overly concerned about their body image and how they are regarded by their peers. Her story encourages children to feel positive about their body image and to accept the love and support offered them by understanding family and friends in times of crisis. The Butterfly Foundation, which is dedicated to helping children overcome eating disorders, is very supportive of the lessons to be gained from this important book. Highly recommended for parents, teachers and health professionals. According to the Butterfly Foundation, over a million Australians are currently experiencing an eating disorder, and less than a quarter of them are getting treatment or support. When Anna Came to Stay centres on a happy young girl called May who falls into heeding advice from her imaginary friend, Anna. Her plight is followed by the family who no longer recognise their daughter and hatch a plan to rescue May from the clutches of Anna. The book will open conversations around eating disorders and how they impact every area of a person’s life. Recognising the signs will help schools and families seek help before the disorder progresses further. The emotions are beautifully captured in a mix of mediums including watercolour and pencil by illustrator Siobhan Skipworth. – Veronica Chapman, TeachEzy Be true to yourself is the message of this book. With its cheerful illustrations, it tells how the support of family helps May get over a damaging obsession, in the form of demanding visitor, Anna. This allows May to slowly build self-esteem as she begins to believe in herself again. A sober but important message. – Libby Hathorn, author, poet, librettist
