The Roller-Coaster Ride

by David Broadbent

Ref: 16672

Vincent and Gran grab the bus to the beach. As they cross an identifiably UK landscape, from the city and past the windmill and the wetlands, Gran suggests they head straight to Funland's roller coaster, a promise which fills Vincent's head with bursts of imagination. Will they go all the way up in to space? Will they need to hang upside down like bats? But when they reach the amusement park, they're faced with an unexpected obstacle...can a Super Deluxe Magnifico ice cream possibly, just possibly, save the day? Breezily inclusive illustrations. Stars protagonists of colour; Vincent has an upper limb difference; a diverse background population includes tech-savvy older people, independent and active disabled people and same sex/gender couples. An extra nice touch on the inside cover: a pencil drawn map of the route the bus takes. 'Anticipation, disappointment and accepting change all explored positively.' (Eileen, Former Primary Teacher, Letterbox Library reviewer). Age 3-6, Paperback 28pp
