500    Original German title: Der umfall, ©2018. 
520    When Noel's mother has a stroke, his world is turned 
       upside down. Especially when a man comes, who tells Noel 
       that he can't stay in the only home he's ever known. He 
       has to move from his apartment and his city to some kind 
       of care facility, in a town he's never heard of. For the 
       first time, Noel is on his own. Who can he trust? Who can 
       he love? There is a village in Germany called Neuerkerode 
       that is largely populated and run by people with 
       developmental disabilities -- the local restaurant, the 
       local bar, the local supermarket. It's a beautiful, even 
       incredible place -- and it's where The Thud takes place. 
       In 2016, cartoonist Mikael Ross began visiting 
       Neuerkerode. Over the course of two years, Ross learned 
       about the people who live there and listened to their 
       stories. As Neuerkerode Protestant Foundation Director 
       Rudiger Becker has stated, Out of this has arisen a 
       powerful piece of literature that depicts, with a rarely 
       seen intensity and authenticity, the lives of people with 
       intellectual disabilities. Told from Noel's perspective 
       with humor and empathy, The Thud offers a rare window into
       the life of a boy living with developmental disabilities. 
       In doing so, Ross has crafted an enchanting story that 
       helps us understand the often misunderstood.
