‘Adventures in Bodiwell’ is a series of children’s picture books on mental and physical health and nutrition. Informative, colourful, and fun, the books take a unique approach to health literacy. Healthy characters, like Harriet Heart and Karl Kidney from Bodiwell, pit against their unhealthy neighbours from Sickville.

A message from the Authors

“A healthy lifestyle is best established from an early age. In creating Bodiwell and its opponents from Sickville, we hope to encourage children to eat healthily and to be physically active.” 
Joan Blaney.

“We are facing an obesity and mental health epidemic and need to act now by educating our kids. I’m committed to improving mental health literacy to help children better understand and communicate mental health difficulties.
Dr Erin Turner.
