"Inspired by the mouse who was clearly addicted to cookies, Ox's story demonstrates how opioid use often leads to a cycle of addiction and recovery. Too often this cycle is hard to break. Although Ox's story is told in a childlike way, opioid use is a very serious and complex topic. Written by national expert on the opioid epidemic Dr. Laura E. Happe, If You Give an Ox an Oxy focuses on preventing opioid misuse for the next generation. Dr. Happe transforms the beloved childhood picture book into an educational resource that teens are sure to remember to help them understand the risks of opioid use--and why it's best not to start in the first place."--Back cover.
