Inhaltsangabe: When Ted notices his mother's injuries, her explanations leave him unconvinced. Scared and confused, he sets out to find the answers for himself, with some help along the way. Poignant, troubling but ultimately reassuring, Otis Doesn't Scratch uses beautiful illustrations and storytelling to engage with the complex issue of self-injury. Aimed at children ages 4-8 who may have a parent, sibling or friend who self-injures, this stand-alone storybook is accompanied by an informative guide for parents, carers and staff. A ground-breaking, invaluable resource for children and their carers - with text by Clare Shaw and illustrations by Tamsin Walker.
