FOR EVERYONE - and healthy people - AGED 9 to 99
Also for schools
you name all senses?
You see with your eyes. You hear with your ears and
smelling is what your nose does. You have a tongue for taste. Feeling is what
your fingers and your skin do. But which body part gives you your sense
balance? You need this for everything you do, you can tell when it stops
working. But it is hardly mentioned in school. Balance
is the foundation to everything.
Get involved in the basics through play.

"I am very impressed. Kids are very eager to learn if you talk to them in the right way. That is exactly the principle that this book uses. A fun read for adults as well. Outstanding as a tool for the classroom too. Beautifully illustrated!"
Verony Hermans - teacher & patient
"Wobbly Wilma and prof. Stable Stan serve up incredibly fun facts on balance. I had no idea that a little twisty organ in your ears had this huge impact! In a playful manner the author and illustrator explain the complex medical mechanisms with great clarity. I savoured the stories about astronauts, zebras, Spider-Man and Van Gogh. I would like to test all of the experiments too. This book is not only nice for kids but also for moms, dads, grandmas, granddads, teachers and aspiring or grown up scientists. Also for people like me, who are just curious."
Hilde Vissers, radio voice & guide for children
"Wobbly Wilma demonstrates the role of balance in everyday life with a beautiful narrative for young and old. Our means of maintaining balance seem obvious, but are anything but. Behind the scenes the brain processes input from the balance organs which in turn allows the eyes to react to quick head movements within 10 milliseconds. Problems in this system can lead to dizziness, difficulty walking upright, nausea etc. This story encourages awareness of the role of balance and the implications of balance problems in patients."

"Complex matter made accessible for the wider public. Even illness is approached playfully. Wobbly Wilma is a hit."
