In his newest story, Roggie the not quite so ordinary lion, who, after falling off a ladder, finds himself having to use a wheelchair, tells us all about the Paralympic Games. His friend, a lynx called Eddie who is a coach for disabled athletes, takes him to the venue of the Paralympics and shows him all the special and interesting things about parasports. Roggie learns about all the many sports, such as goalball and boccia, and finds out that blind athletes can also ski!
Igor Plohl is a teacher and an author of picture books in which he talks about being disabled. Roggie the Lion, his literary alter ego, came to life when Igor wanted to talk to his students about his painful experience when he had to deal with his new life in a wheelchair following a serious accident. He has also written about his experience dealing with his new situation in the autobiographic story It Can Happen To You!, which he wrote for adult readers.
