This accessible, funny, and groundbreaking story addresses the questions children often ask, as well as a disabled child's choice not to answer.

The first ever picture book addressing how a disabled child might want to be spoken to, based on author James Catchpole’s real-life childhood experiences.

What happened to you? Was it a shark? A burglar? A lion? Did it fall off?

A boy named Joe is trying to play pirates at the playground, but he keeps being asked what happened to his leg. Bombarded with questions and silly suggestions, Joe becomes more and more fed up…until the kids finally understand they don't need to know what happened. And that they’re wasting valuable playtime!

Based on the author’s real childhood experiences, this honest, funny, and authentic picture book is an empowering read for anyone with a disability, and for young readers learning how best to address differences.

Includes a letter to parents on how to deal with the natural curiosity of their child when encountering a disabled person.
