Description

Finally it's 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 one-day 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!

Editorial Review

"In Zoom, Munsch's typical comic chaos is paired again with illustrator Michael Martchenko's bright, colourful, and humorously detailed watercolour paintings to tell the story of a little girl who wanted to go faster." (Quill & Quire)
