Getting to school on time can be tough for any kid.

But when you’re in a wheelchair, it can be double

the trouble.

This light-hearted rhyming story also has

an important message.

It demonstrates how the simplest of things, like traveling along a footpath, can be difficult for someone using a wheelchair. But with perseverance and trust in their own abilities, anyone is able to achieve

their goals.

                Readers' Choice 5 Star Review September 2023

"A delightful picture book about a remarkable young boy with a super wheelie chair and an infectious sense of fun and adventure.

This book will help children who may use a wheelchair, prepare for their first day at school. It will help other children understand other children's

differences and abilities.


Beautifully written in rhyme, with charming illustrations by Winendra Adi, the book delivers an important message of acceptance, inclusion, and friendship."

Little Parachutes Review May 2021
"Add this one to your book list...

A light-hearted and engaging rhyming picture book that focuses on a young boy’s journey to school in his manual wheelchair.

The story gives a very positive view of wheelchair use, emphasizing that it can be fast and fun, while at the same time making the reader more aware of the challenges and obstacles that wheelchair users face each day. A fun little rhyming story that promotes resilience, kindness, and acceptance."
