BUSY Littleport author Jean Shaw has published two books in the space of just a week.

Jean, who has eight books to her name, wrote her first three non-fiction books about her son Jodi, who has autism, and about the possible link to mercury poisoning caused by vaccines and dental amalgam.

Her latest publications go off in a new direction, however, and are aimed at children. The books are titled, Jodi Goes to the Farm and Jodi Goes to the Zoo.

Both are educational, colour illustrated books written in rhyming verse, and include additional animal facts and jokes.

Jean chose the subjects because her son Jodi is still frightened of cats and dogs but not of larger farm or zoo animals. She says Jodi’s has his fear because domestic animals invade his space, which is something most autistic people dislike.

Jodi Goes To The Farm and Jodi Goes To The Zoo are both available to purchase on Amazon and Kindle
