The Fantastic Freewheeler graphic novel series (ages 8 -12). Just like author Molly Felder, 12-year-old Drew Daniels uses a wheelchair to get around. In this four-book graphic novel series Drew fights for justice and saves the day! (The Fantastic Freewheeler, Sixth-Grade Superhero!, The Fantastic Freewheeler vs. the Mall of Doom, The Fantastic Freewheeler and the Mega Bot Attack, and The Fantastic Freewheeler and the School Dance Disaster.)


MOLLY FELDER has written several books including Henry the Boy and the Fantastic Freewheeler graphic novel series featuring characters with cerebral palsy (CP) just like her. She has a BA and an MA from New York University’s Gallatin School, where she studied creative writing and fiction writing. She is a Children’s Book Academy graduate and has attended two Revision Retreats with The Highlights Foundation.

Molly's CP can make it difficult for her to do things like open doors and pick up things she drops, so she has an assistant dog named Patterson who helps with her with those tasks. One of his favorite tasks is taking off her socks! Molly and Patterson were brought together by Canine Companions, which has matched disabled people with assistance dogs since 1975. LEARN MORE

At the age of 14 Amber lost her left leg from a rare form of bone cancer, and like Molly, uses a wheelchair to get around. She loves reading (obvi), shopping, and trying new things— like hosting author events for Greensboro Bound! She lives with her husband Trey and their Maltipoo, Khloe.
