Its a Road-Trip Rollercoaster!
Author: David Baddiel
As we roll into 2023 and back into lessons, we have a good range of new books on the bookcase. Here is the first one I have read this school term. 'It's a Road Trip Rollercoaster', definitely.
I laughed my way through this book. One of my students is now laughing her way through it.
My impression of this novel is beyond words. It is unique. That is what I would describe this novel as, 'unique'.
Take a girl, and add her brother and friends. Take a family broken by an accident that put the girl in a wheelchair. Add to the equation - that girl loves cars. She also needs a new wheelchair....
Now add to the mix, one of the friends being an inventor...
What do you have?
An adventure like no other.
I am sure this book will have many young readers wanting more. There are illustrations the whole way through that will keep the reader glued to the pages. This book is well worth adding to any young reader's bookcase.
Well, a Ford Transit van. Which might sound strange. You'll have to read this book to find out why.
BUT AMY HAS NEVERE BEEN ABLE TO DO THE THING SHE DREAMS OF MOST: TO DRIVE.
