Stanley Bagshaw and the Fourteen Foot Wheel by Bob Wilson

Stanley Bagshaw, the lovable duffer, lives near a factory which makes sprockets and wheels. Left to watch the wheel-making machine, our Stanley falls asleep and the result is a fourteen-foot wheel. The wheel then makes its way through Huddersgate causing hilarious levels of chaos.


These irresistible comic-strip stories, set in the flat-cap North, are great for reading aloud for independent reading. The Ultimate First Book Guide
