The Taylor Turbochaser
Get Ready for the ride of your life in David Baddiel’s brill new blockbuster!
Jump on board The Taylor Turbochaser for a rollercoaster road trip!
Eleven-year-old Amy Taylor loves cars more than anything. And even though she was in a really bad car accident when she was eight – which means she has to use a wheelchair – she’s determined to be a race car driver one day.
So, when her genius inventor best friend, Rahul, turns her wheelchair into a super-car, Amy jumps straight into the driver’s seat. And it’s not long before she and her friends set off on an epic adventure!
Let’s meet the gang! (from left to right)
– Jack is Amy’s grumpy older brother – and the most sarcastic 14-year-old ever!
– Janet is Amy and Rahul’s friend, and is permanently away with the fairies!
– Inventor Rahul transforms his best friend Amy’s wheelchair into The Taylor Turbochaser.
– Amy wants to prove she can be a great racing driver – and she won’t let her old wheelchair with its wobbly wheel stop her!
