Meet “Octavia and Henry at their craniofacial unit” – a book for children with craniofacial conditions. It is created for children, parents and carers as an aid to understanding the hospital experience involved in the treatment of all types of craniosynostosis. Skull surgery is often a required or recommended treatment for craniosynostosis and this book gives families a child-friendly overview of what to expect during the process. It includes best friends Octavia and Ewan and baby brother Henry. Central to the story is a cuddly toy rabbit, dressed in a surgical gown, just like the children when they have a surgical hospital stay. The toy rabbit has been created as a real toy that is supplied with this book and we hope this will provide a comfort to children, as well as creating useful role-play opportunities.
