    Lauretta has a need for speed – in her super-powered wheelchair!

    It’s finally time for Lauretta to get a new wheelchair. But she isn’t satisfied with a regular 5- or 10- speed model. Nothing will do but the 92-speed, black, silver and red, dirt bike wheelchair!

    When Lauretta gets a speeding ticket during her tryout of the super wheels, her parents tell her the wheelchair has to go back. But when her brother has an accident, only Lauretta and her 92-speed, black, silver and red, dirt-bike wheelchair can get him to the hospital in time!

    With his trademark wit and whimsy, this classic Robert Munsch story celebrates that all kids can use their own strengths and talents to do great things! Now reissued with a bright new cover design.

    Robert Munsch wrote this story after receiving a letter from a fan named Lauretta, who asked for a story about a girl who walks with crutches and uses a wheelchair.

    ROBERT MUNSCH started telling stories when he was teaching in a daycare, to get the kids to settle down. Now he is Canada’s number one author for young readers with more than 80 books in print, including such bestsellers as The Paper Bag Princess, We Share Everything!, So Much Snow! and Love You Forever. Every one of his stories was first told aloud to children – and each one is dedicated to the kid who inspired the story. He is a member of the Order of Canada, has a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame, and is a hero to generations of young readers. Robert Munsch lives in Guelph, Ontario.
