This book started with a request from Physiotherapist Lisa Howell to her Dad, Mike, for some cartoons. She wanted them to act as conversation starters, concerning the risk of injury due to over stretching, to be used in some of her Dance Physio seminars. Mike, armed with some disturbing photos of training practices complied, but then began reflecting on the possible reasons behind such teaching. As a retired teacher he has had many colleagues over 45 years, and has worked with and met many really good people, who from time to time taught badly. Why? What caused them to act that way? How do you break that cycle? He had drawn hundreds of cartoons of various staff members when they had made "bloopers" and he knew that laughter is a good way of diffusing a situation, so using all of the visual clues in the original cartoons, Madame La Jaune was born!
