Lauretta's mother takes her to buy a new wheelchair, but Lauretta isn't satisfied with a regular five-speed or ten-speed model. 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!

Description

"Munsch's high-flying fantasy blends humor, hyperbole, and sound effects set down in large print to evoke both silliness and suspense. Lauretta herself is a spunky kid, whose crutches, leg braces, and wheelchair are part of her character, not the focus. The brightly colored, animated art is almost frenetic; it's full of exaggeration and witty details, such as the wheelchair megamart. But what sets this apart, of course, is the story's refreshing, lighthearted approach and its lively, unstoppable protagonist, who, like many kids her age, dreams of going fast, faster, fastest -- on a great set of wheels." -- Shelle Rosenfeld, Booklist
