Young Carers provide an incredible contribution to society and in Gwent we are keen to ensure they are supported across various settings in their caring roles. Written by young carers themselves, this book is based on real life young carers experiences. The book is set in a jungle where young Jack who is a parrot, experiences some misadventures when looking after and protecting his little sister Thelma. 

The rolling emotions of  love, care, danger, courage  acceptance and friendships gives confidence to others in the jungle to support one another and prove that they are not alone in caring and that being different is just simply amazing. Young carers said “ The book will help young carers, teachers and others to show everybody It’s Cool to Care.”
