This is a delightful paperback book written by Mother and Son, Marion Maz and Steve B Mason, with lovely illustrations by Kristina-Rose Sears, and its main aim is to subtly take the fear out of CPAP devices in children, as the book just treats it as a ‘normal’ part of life.


If you need to use a CPAP or a Ventilator Machine at night it is natural to worry about your children’s reaction.  Will they be upset if they see you with a mask on your face?  What will they think about the hose hanging from it?  This book was written specially for families like yours.  It aims to show that the machine is just a useful gadget that some people use to make life easier for them.

Our hero, Rufus the Chatty Chimp, has lots of interesting things in his home,  including his CPAP and its mask which help him when he’s poorly.  Rufus invites the child to look around his home as he describes all the things he uses each day.  His CPAP is just one of those useful everyday things.  He likes it - it is part of his usual bed-time routine, and he is shown wearing the mask and sleeping soundly.  Read the book with your child and discuss each item as it appears - the CPAP is just another one of these normal things. Encourage your child to get involved with the story by searching for the mouse that is hiding about the house.

For those who prefer a digital version it is also available on Amazon for Kindle and clicking on the following Amazon link to purchase will give us a small welcome remuneration towards our charity funds.

We try our best to ship all orders received by us Monday-Friday on the same working day if received before 12 pm, and more often than not orders processed before 3 pm will be despatched the same day whenever possible.  Weekend or UK bank holiday orders are sent out the next working day.  An automated email is sent when products have been despatched so please check your spam box and add us to your safe senders list.

There is the option for UK 1st or 2nd Class Mail in the UK.  Masks and some other more expensive products are always sent via 'signed for' delivery and cannot be left in 'safe' places, but there is the option for an alternative shipping address when processing the orders.   International orders are sent via tracked Airmail, and whilst we're happy to ship internationally, we are not responsible for any charges that may be added in your own country.

Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before purchase.  On the rare occasion delivery charges are miscalculated by the website, a refund will be sent, as it is not our policy to make money on postage charges and neither do we add the cost of delivery into the price and offer so-called  'free delivery' like some sites and Ebay pressurise sellers to do!

Wherever possible with larger parcels, we try to re-use boxes to keep shipping costs down and protect the environment.

If a product is out of stock and the order contains multiple items, the 'in stock' items will be sent immediately and further items will follow upon arrival with no further postage charges.

If you are purchasing on behalf of someone else who meets the above criteria, you must provide their name and address, and you will be prompted of this during the checkout process.

Customers living outside of Europe do not pay UK VAT charges, so please leave the the 'zero rate eligibility' box ticked.  However, we cannot be held responsible for any additional costs incurred when the products reach your own country.

If you are purchasing with the intention of re-selling any products, you are liable to pay VAT on all products so you must untick the 'zero rate eligibility' box which will add VAT to your order.
