Product Description

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-Strong-willed and quick-thinking Lauretta insists on the fastest, most souped-up wheelchair available. While her mother tries to persuade her to choose something a little more sensible, the girl prevails and she gets a 92-speed, dirt-bike model. Her love of speed gets her into some trouble with the police, but in the end, after her brother cuts his finger, she saves the day by whisking him off to the hospital. The watercolor, cartoon artwork conveys Lauretta's adventures and enhances the text. An amusing story with a positive message about young people with disabilities.

From Booklist

K-Gr. 3. It's time for Lauretta to replace her old wheelchair, and she wants one that is fast--the "92-speed, black, silver, and red, dirt-bike wheelchair" model. Reluctantly, her mother agrees. Soon Lauretta is joyfully zooming down the road. Unfortunately, a policeman issues Lauretta a speeding ticket, prompting her parents to rethink the purchase. Then a household calamity necessitates fast transportation, and Lauretta's chair saves the day. Munsch's high-flying fantasy blends humor, hyperbole, and sound effects set down in large print to evoke both silliness and suspense. Lauretta herself is a spunky kid, whose crutches, leg braces, and wheelchair are part of her character, not the focus. The brightly colored, animated art is almost frenetic; it's full of exaggeration and witty details, such as the wheelchair megamart. But what sets this apart, of course, is the story's refreshing, lighthearted approach and its lively, unstoppable protagonist, who, like many kids her age, dreams of going fast, faster, fastest--on a great set of wheels.

What can you say. It's a Munsch book. I will mention this particular edition is just a great size and graphic quality for reading at bedtime, very easy to actually read in low light (if you need glasses also), and pictures (in great detail) also large enough to really enjoy. We will be looking for similar editions for other Munsch books.

Kids will love the fast paced action of this story. Instead of suggesting that Lauretta is "confined" to a wheelchair, as so many authors unfortunately do, Munsch recognizes the sensational independence that the wheelchair brings to this spunky young girl. Highly recommended for all!

Another fantastic book by Robert Munsch! The fact that it touches on children with limited abilities is great! Now, when my daughters see a wheelchair they usually say "Zooooooooooom!".

This is a favorite of my two boys. It's so nice to have a fun story where a disability is not the focus of the action. I read this to my K class too and it's always a winner.
