Children’s book teaches youngsters about disabilities

copy of you're so amzing

From the author and illustrator of What Happened to You?,  a funny, whip-smart and friendly picture book that asks  readers to think about the stories and feelings abled people attach to disability. 

When people meet Joe, they often treat him as  Amazing Joe or Poor Joe. But can't he just be . . . Joe? 

Joe has one leg. He is 'amazing'. He knows this because  wherever he goes people always tell him he’s amazing.  Amazing for sliding down the slide, for kicking a ball . . . even  walking to get an ice cream, or even just eating an ice cream.  Of course, being Amazing Joe is better than being Poor Joe . . . 

You’re So Amazing! is a ground-breaking picture book, which  explores how we respond to disability. 

James and Lucy Catchpole run The Catchpole Agency from  their home in Oxford. Their popular Instagram, @thecatchpoles, discusses disability representation in  literature. James is an amputee like Joe. His debut picture  book, What Happened to You? received impressive critical  acclaim and awards. This is the first book Lucy and James  have written together. 

Karen George is an award-winning illustrator living in Bristol.  She illustrated Freddie and the Fairy for Julia Donaldson.  She was the illustrator of What Happened to You?. 

You’re So Amazing! by James and Lucy Catchpole is on sale now in hardback (£12.99) and paperback (£7.99)
