Synopsis

A Little Bit of Mischief by Jenny Sullivan

It's not fair! A school trip to Techniquest should be fun, thinks Cari. But in a wheelchair? With other people bossing her about? Cari is determined to be in charge for once - even if that means making a little bit of mischief! Also available in Welsh, Yr Amser Gorau Erioed! Suitable for children age 7 and younger.

Reviews

By choosing the image of the wheelchair-bound girl for its cover, illustrator Graham Howells reveals the main character of this heartening picture book by Jenny Sullivan: it is Howellss brilliance with facial expressions apparent throughout which keeps the reader guessing. Could such a person be responsible for a little bit of mischief? Cari is under a bad-tempered black cloud and isnt looking forward to the school trip to Cardiff Bays Techniquest Science Centre. Confinement, restriction and negativity dominate whilst her friends can go anywhere they like, and do whatever they like, as they enjoy the thrill of the hands-on exhibits. Cari feels she has no choice, rejecting every offer of support and encouragement. She eventually discovers a display which captures her imagination, and also finds a really good place to hide ... Having escaped from her carer Elin and the rest of the school group, Cari wanders excitedly around the wheelchair-friendly interactive experiments, and is caught up in their wonder while enjoying her new found freedom. Indoor thunderstorms are amazing and larger-than-life musical instruments are cool. Unaccompanied, she rides up and down in the lift four times! And when classmate Darren appears, despite informing Ceri of the panic her separation from the group has caused, the pair gleefully continue the tour together. Needless to say the staff are relieved but angry when they return
