The days that followed July 9th were a real surprise!   The first story was covered by our local paper the Bournemouth Daily Echo.  The following day it could be to be found in most of the National papers! It was thanks to these newspapers online readers and their comments that I started to give a lot more thought to what Izzy had done…..from that was born! Here are some of the articles (click on each picture):

Isabelle was also asked to take part in the filming of programme for a National TV station in Japan.  The programme, named The Fateful Decision featured 10 amazing events that occurred around the world.  Each incident involved a fateful decision and the events could have had an entirely different outcome had it not been for those decisions that were made.

About us

Izzy and Ollie is a new Children's Safety Education project which was inspired when 2 and a half year old Isabelle called an ambulance for her Mum when she experienced a life threatening allergic reaction. The incident made Joanne consider how wonderful it would be if all young children could be educated about emergency situations. To simply learn their full name, age and address as early as possible (as her 1st book illustrates) could be highly beneficial not only to themselves, but it could also contribute to help save other people’s life. The books follow characters Izzy and Ollie who find themselves entangled in various situations. They encompass Child Safety issues together with simple courses of action that children could learn and replicate should they ever find themselves in the same situation.
