Jojo and his best friend Charly’s class often do silly things, and then something goes wrong. But nobody would have thought that things could also go wrong in someone’s head. However, everything suddenly changes when Jojo falls over in phys ed and has to go to the hospital. Jojo seems to be afraid of school and then the others make fun of him. Jojo explains to Charly that he has an illness called epilepsy. This means that lots of nerve cells in the brain are silly in the same way all at once – so that, for a short time, some things don’t work for him like they should. Their classmates must be able to understand that, Charly thinks. And then Charly and Jojo have a brilliant idea.
This story aims to help children affected by epilepsy to understand their condition better, and should help accompanying adults to explain the different forms of epilepsy in a way that is appropriate for children.
