Parents everywhere worry when their baby or toddler doesn't seem to eat as much as they think he should. Carlos González, a paediatrician and father, sets those fears to rest as he explores the reasons why a child refuses food, the pitfalls of growth charts, and the ways that growth and activity affect a child's calorific needs. He discusses how eating problems start and how they can be avoided. My Child Won't Eat includes mothers' stories of the anguish and torment they have gone through in trying to get their children to eat.
Carlos González, author of Kiss Me!, reassures parents that children know how much they need to eat and explains why a parent's only involvement should be in providing healthy food choices. Forcing a child to eat more than he needs can only lead to tears, tantrums and, eventually, possibly even obesity.

Se trata de la historia del comerciante inglés Lawrence Fortwright, personaje que vivió a finales del siglo XIX. Aunque las historias de Lawrence abarcan más de veinte años y tres continentes, la composición de este libro gira en torno a un solo asunto: la solución al Misterio de la Abadía de Malmesbury, que mantuvo ocupada a la prensa durante algunos meses en el llamado “otoño de niebla”, en 1894, y que fue conocido en los titulares con el nombre de El misterio del hombre flotante. Este misterio se narra aquí en la forma de un relato simple.
