About this Book:

Donny often walks with a cane, his legs are wibbly-wobbly and he falls down a lot. One morning Donny woke up and his cane broke! Feeling annoyed he went to Battery Square to get a new one. Then he saw three strange shapes coming his way. He was so scared! What if this was the terrible monster his friend Ro told him about the day before?

The Chargimals live in Chargieville alongside the Normberts. The Chargimals live with various health conditions, and the Normberts are the “normal” healthy people. This story is about friendship, reduced mobility, anxiety, and how to overcome obstacles mixed with a little bit of magic.

About the Authors:

Natalie van Scheltinga was born and raised in Amsterdam, but now resides on the Canary Islands with her daughter. She lives with fibromyalgia, celiac disease, Hashimoto’s disease, and cold urticaria. All these health conditions are a source of inspiration for her creations and stories. When she’s not creating she can be found spending time with her family and pets, watching shows, or reading a book, while eating lots of chocolate.

Jenni Lock is from Ohio, USA where she lives with Crohn’s disease, fibromyalgia, migraines, anxiety, depression, ptsd, and a very snarky therapy cat named Luna. When she’s not writing for The Chargimals, Jenni spends her time visiting other people’s dogs, binge watching her favorite shows, and eating snacks.
