‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only

“Under the weather or on the mend.
From cover to cover this book is your friend!”
Feeling unwell, going to the doctor or having to take your medicine is not much fun, but with these humorous rhymes, by Latvian poet Inese Zandere, translated and reimagined by Catherine Ann Cullen, you’ll soon be feeling better. There are poems to cover every aspect of your health: from the diagnostic – ‘Thermometer’, ‘The Syringe and Drip’ or Ultan Ulrich Ultrasound’ – “Ultan Ulrich Ultrasound went to a special school for spies – All that stuff beneath your skin Count Ultrasound can visualise.” – to ‘Impatient Patients’, and you had better take your medicine otherwise ‘The Jellyleg Germ’ will get you.
The brash colourful and comical artwork by Reinis Pētersons fits perfectly with every poem. Ideal for reading aloud and for all those reluctant patients everywhere, this is the book for you.
