Kids came out in 2003 but you can still find copies of it and at reasonable prices too. It was a personal project for fashion photographer Mario Testino in association with the Clic Sargent Cancer Care for Children Society whose patron Lady Helen Windsor had introduced it to Mario.
He had personal experience of the situations many families find themselves in having lost his younger brother to liver cancer at 10 years old when Mario was 17.
The book is small but has has an interesting format as a cut off circle and it is a great view of how this world class portrait and fashion photographer has dealt with capturing the images of the not so still young models.
