Authored by Dr Pip Gaunt who worked as a Paediatric Trainee Fellow at the Great North Children's Hospital (GNCH), the book is written entirely in rhyme and includes a glossary to help educate readers. The book has been illustrated by Sarah Dickinson, a volunteer at the GNCH. The story follows Hatty as she attends The Jungle Hospital due to asthma. The book is targeted at Key Stage 1-2 (ages 4-11) and it is hoped that such stories will help support paediatric patients with asthma. The book is designed to empower children to take ownership of their medical condition by using storytelling to consolidate the important messages clinical staff try to promote during treatment.

The publishing of Hatty the Hyena has been funded by the GNCH’s charity, The Great North Children’s Hospital Foundation. Any profits from sales of the book will be split between the charity and supporting the development and publishing of future books focusing on a range of different long-term medical conditions.
