With her characteristic humor and compassion, Nancy Carlson helps young readers through what is often a scary and embarrassing rite of passage. Sometimes you barf. But it’s OK. You get better!

Library Media Connection
“I like this book because it will help educators discuss an embarrassing topic with children; the cover art and illustrations are eye-catching and fun. This book will have children giggling until the last page.”―Library Media Connection
“Giddily illustrated with glorious cartoon grossness, this is a great normalizing device for all those reluctant regurgitators out there.” —Booklist
“[Carlson] writes with empathy, reassurance, and a ’them’s the breaks, kid’ brand of humor as she follows a girl’s bout with the flu…. and her matter-of-fact writing and visual demonstrations that everything from aardvarks to leprechauns throw up, too, are a kind of medicine in themselves.” —Publishers Weekly
