Astra has a hard time concentrating wherever she is. She finds it difficult to focus at school and can't seem to sit still even when she's hanging out with her friends. Fortunately, the Medikidz are keeping a close eye on things from Mediland (their distant planet shaped like a human body) so when Astra's friends seem to be upset with her they quickly arrive on the scene to help! The Medikidz want to explain ADHD to Astra and teach her what can be done to help her symptoms. Pump, Chi, Skinderella, Gastro and Axon - super-powered action heroes - whisk her off to Mediland where she goes right inside the skull for an up close tour of the brain itself in order to understand how it works and what happens in somebody who has ADHD! Join Astra on her whirlwind adventure around all four lobes of the brain - she'll meet the hard working postal neurons and learn exactly how a breakdown in communication can leave the frontal lobe conductor confused. The Medikidz will also introduce Astra to two friendly hormones, Nora and Dopey, who will teach her about the treatments available to help her deal with ADHD. Medikidz believes that every child deserves access to medical information they can understand. We are creating a global community of young people that are informed, empowered and health-aware. Using a vivid comic book series for children aged between 8-15 years, the Medikidz superheros engagingly explain various health conditions and their respective treatments with each written by doctors and peer-reviewed by leading consultants.
