This blog was not intended to be just book reviews, but there are so many good books out there I keep thinking of just one more I've got to mention. There will be other things mentioned at times, I promise, but here's my honest confession; I'm a bookaholic with no intention of recovering. And I'm probably not the only person guilty of bibliolatry. Perhaps we should form a support group and call it Bookaholics Unanimous.

Here's a picture book that appeals to both girls and boys because the protagonist is a feisty girl and the story involves wheels. (I've seldom known a boy who could resist those.)
The book is "Zoom" by Robert Munsch and Michael Martchenko. It just happens that the girl needs a new electric wheelchair and can choose between various models. She picks the one that goes fastest of all - amazingly fast!
I like this book partly because her disability isn't the main focus. There's no appeal for sympathy, it's just a fun story. The illustrations are great, too.
