Wheelie is the story of a wheelchair in search of adventure. Gifted with special powers by Josef, the man who rescues and repairs him, he longs to help a child explore the world. Told from Wheelie’s point of view, the book is the first of a fiction, chapter book series for children aged six to nine and their parents. My target market is physically challenged children who do not see themselves as diminished; they only see obstacles requiring creative problem solving. The secondary audience is able-bodied children and parents desiring to understand what it is like to be different. Wheelie allows the reader to step inside the life of a wheelchair and his human and non-human friends, to know their thoughts, feelings and dreams. Wheelie presents a fresh viewpoint, not one conditioned by old norms.

Come adventure with us. Let us know what you think, especially if you have a wheelchair in your family.
