Catherine Mercury features simple illustrations and hand-lettered type in a new and unusual book for young children of alcoholics, Think of Wind. The author wrote it for her young neice and nephew after a visit to her sister who was in an alcoholic marriage. After seeing the changes in the children as their parents struggled with the disease, she decided to write a book about Children of Alcoholics feeling rather than one that focused on events.

- Nonjudgemental observations of life in an alcoholic home
- A Springboard to discuss emotions resulting from addictive family dynamics
- A hopeful outlook from sharing one's experience
This publication is ideal for use at primary schools, Children of Alcoholics camps, and for parents and grandparents to read to their children.
