No, she insists on the 92-speed, black, silver, and red dirt-bike wheelchair. When she gets a speeding ticket during a one-day tryout, her parents insist that the chair be returned to the store . . . until Lauretta's older brother has an accident and only one person can whisk him to the hospital on time--Lauretta, in her amazing wheelchair!

When Lauretta tries out a 92-speed, silver and gold, dirt-bike wheelchair, she gets a speeding ticket but also helps out her brother.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Lauretta loves to go fast and does not let the fact that she uses a wheelchair get in her way. Her mother takes her to the store to get a new wheelchair, but each wheelchair she tests isn't fast enough. Finally, she finds exactly what she has been looking for—a "92-speed, black, silver, and red, dirt-bike wheelchair." Soon Lauretta is out on the street trying out this new wheelchair. She is caught speeding by the police and her parents tell her that the wheelchair is too fast and they will have to take it back. Then the unexpected happens—her brother cuts his finger and needs to go the hospital. The car won't start so Lauretta pulls her brother onto the wheelchair and zooms him off to the hospital. The police catch her again, but instead of giving her a ticket they escort her to the hospital. Lauretta is a hero and her parents agree to let her keep the wheelchair. Lauretta shows courage, determination, and tenacity. 2003, Scholastic, Inc.,
— Debbie Bohn
School Library Journal
K-Gr 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.-G.

    Zoom! and Robert Munsch!

    I think any Robert Munsch book is a winner! You can¿t go wrong with Munsch! I recommend all the Munschworks collections (each volume contains 5 stories) and anything else by Robert Munsch he is so smart, clever, witty, entertaining, funny, creative and just plain amazing! This book is particularly popular in our family because my wife uses an electric wheelchair. We all like to think that Lauretta (the girl in the story) is ¿mommy¿ as a little girl. ¿Mommy¿ still likes to go fast and the kids like it too! A great, fun story!

    Another Munsch winner.

    Lauretta needs a new wheelchair to replace her old one. She and her mother look at different models at the wheelchair store. Lauretta tries out a number of wheelchairs, but they are all too slow. She wants the 92 speed, black, silver, and red, dirt-bike style. Her mother thinks it is too much money and goes too fast. The store lets Lauretta try it out for a day. Out on the highway Lauretta puts the chair into ninety-second gear and zooms away. Unfortunately, the police give her a ticket for speeding. Her parents want to take the wheelchair back to the store, but when her brother stabs his finger with a fork, quick thinking Lauretta gets him to the hospital. Although, her parents now will let her keep the wheelchair, the speedy Lauretta considers it too slow. She wants a faster one. Munsch depicts a little girl who has life to live and places to go. Lauretta is not portrayed as disabled, she is shown to be differently abled. This is a great story pointing out that the wheelchair bound are as able as anyone else. The illustrations are priceless. This is great choice for individual reading or storytime. It is a must purchase for public and school libraries

    WONDERFUL

    My son is in a wheelchair. We bought this one because he was getting his first power chair. The teacher read it for his class and they all loved it. It is my kids favorite(all 3). I would tell any parent this is a must have.
