What Happened to You?
Author: James Catchpole
The first ever picture book addressing how a disabled child might want to be spoken to.
What happened to you? Was it a shark? A burglar? A lion? Did it fall off?
Imagine you were asked the same question again and again throughout your life . . .
Imagine if it was a question that didn't bring about the happiest of memories . . .
This is the experience of one-legged Joe, a child who just wants to have fun in the playground . . .
Constantly seen first for his disability, Joe is fed up of only ever being asked about his leg. All he wants to do is play Pirates.
But as usual, one after the other, all the children ask him the same question they always ask, "What happened to you?"
