Eight short stories written by children with disabilities ranging from brittle bone disease to cerebral palsy to Usher's syndrome (partial deafness and tunnel vision) to wheelchair users for various reasons. Two children with learning difficulties as well as physical ones are also included. Each child has a well-known author to help with the writing, and the stories are positive and fun. The children exhibit huge enjoyment of life and emphasise their normal needs as well as their problems. Excellent for both able and disabled youngsters.
