  Leigh's Wheelie Adventures  

By Charlene McIver

Illustrations by Claudia Gadotti

Published November 2022

A school nature study project makes Leigh anxious as he attempts to keep up with his more able-bodied classmates.

After discovering an easier way to complete the exercise, he embraces nature rather than attempting to climb a tree with his friends.

An uplifting story of friendship, inclusion, and self-awareness.

Yike! What's that on the back of my chair? Leigh gasps and turns quickly to snap a picture.


'I can't use my body or my legs to help me if I fall,' Leigh says glumly.

'I'm staying on the ground tonight.'


'What's this?' Cosmo asks Tara as he removes a squashed caterpillar from her hair.
