"It's an impressive piece of work!" - Quentin Blake (Roald Dahl's Illustrator)

Welcome to...

'The Adventures of Grandad Wheels!'

'The Adventures of Grandad Wheels!' is a unique series of children's books about the crazy adventures of a disabled Grandad in a wheelchair and his Grandson Charlie.

Our books are suitable for all kids, but especially primary school age children.  They are beautifully illustrated and presented.


Each story will tell the reader a little bit about what it is like to use a wheelchair… but more importantly, the stories will make the reader laugh out loud at the silly things Grandad Wheels and Charlie get up to!


Above all else, these books aim to show that anyone in a wheelchair, whatever their age, can still have fun and be fun to be with.


All proceeds from sales of The Adventures of Grandad Wheels!’ are donated to two important charities that help those with Spinal Injuries – the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) and Back Up

And this is what our readers are saying...

This is how much Grandad Wheels has donated to charity so far...


... and there's more to come!

"Ruby absolutely loves the book, both the story and the illustrations (and finding the tennis balls!). She has insisted that we read it every night since we got it, and is so impressed with the fact that it has been signed by “the lady who drew the pictures”. She loves it so much that she took it into school today for World Book Day as she wanted to share her “extra-special” book with all of her class-mates.'" - Nina Martin
