Praise for The Gluten Glitch

"Many food-allergic children will be able to relate to Gideon as he sobs,“It’s not fair!”
Parents and children alike will appreciate his mother’s gentle response, including reminding him why he avoids gluten and – more importantly – changing the focus to all of the delicious things that are still on the menu."

Linda Coss, author of “How to Manage Your Child’s Life-Threatening Food Allergies

"I think Ms. John's perspective of addressing the emotional side of being a gluten-free child can help facilitate a better understanding for many children dealing with the everyday aspects of being gluten-free. It's nice to see a children's book that can home in on an important topic in such a touchable way." - Article - Daily Forage-Gluten Free,

"This is a great book for helping children understand and cope with having food allergies." - Kid's Books That Take On Tricky Topics, by Nicole Knepper, Mom's Who Drink and Swear, Blog for The Chicago Tribune

Kudos to Stasie John for creating a fun and whimsical book with a very important message!

A wonderful story for young readers wanting to learn more about gluten-free living!"
