by Nikki Evans and Brontė Evans Pollock
This is the second book written and illustrated by Brontė Evans Pollock and Nikki Evans about Eloise Jane Simpson, a regular girl with a not so regular problem.
In the first book, Eloises Excellent Experiment, Eloise had a problem with The Worries. So she put together a super duper worry taming package to help her to beat The Worries which it did.
In this book, Eloise, Jerome and the Jitterbugs, Eloises cousin Jerome Jethro Simpson comes to stay while his parents are working in Antarctica. But Jerome has a problem with The Jitterbugs, commonly known as ADHD (or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder).
Over the course of the school holidays on their eccentric grandparents farm, Eloise and Jerome discover that animals can help people overcome problems in unexpected and sometimes unconventional ways. Even someone with The Jitterbugs like Jerome.
