The Adventures of Pinkie by Anton Minkels


The Adventures of Pinkie by Anton Minkels

Story book for children, from four years old, which teaches them in a non-threatening way about Motor Neurone Disease. Very useful for teachers and published in cooperation with ALS Societies in Holland and Belgium.


About the Author

In his everyday life, the author Anton Minkels work as a consultant for MEE (Organisation which helps disabled or people who are chronically ill to take part in society). He always told his children about the adventures of a little pink lamb called Pinkie. Through his annual participation in the Tour du ALS he discovered that there is nothing to help children understand the disease ALS. That is how the idea arose to make a book about this subject with illustrations made by his sister, Carina van Pinxten. In a 'cuddly' way the author tells about this horrible disease without being dramatic.
