What People Are Saying
“M.C. Plays Hide & Seek’ helped me to understand that people in your life may die in the physical sense but never in your heart.”
Hannah Bodner, Age 14
“I don’t like to talk about cancer, but I was OK reading ‘M.C. Plays Hide & Seek’ because it describes things I’ve heard about but didn’t really understand.”
Jade Bodner, Age 11
“At first glance, I had reservations sharing a book about the anthropomorphizing of cancer with my daughter. Seeing it through her eyes changed my opinion entirely. M. C. kept it light; she chuckled multiple times. At the end, she said, ‘I like the way you can help get rid of it and still have fun together.’ Hide & Seek facilitated lots of conversation. I wish I had this book sooner!”
Mother, Advanced stage cancer survivor
“As much as I had a strong aversion to meeting M. C. personally, I fell in love
with M.C. the character….strange as it may seem.”
“M.C. Plays Hide & Seek” de-mystifies cancer – a truly wonderful resource.”
Jennifer Deneault RN, BSN, OCN
Oncology Nurse Navigator
“M.C. Plays Hide & Seek” makes it easier for kids to digest tough information.”
Sam LaMonte, M.D.
“There is wonderful imagery and flow to this book. The facts inform without frightening children.”
Librarian, Bethlehem PA
“M.C. is addressed as something outside of a person, a clever way to make the subject of cancer more tolerable for children. Loved the photos, too.”
