This is one of the most beautiful books we have ever had the pleasure to present. It is a fantasy story about a very real little girl.
Six-year-old Carmela Chillery-Watson has a rare form of muscular dystrophy called LMNA-CMD. This means that her muscles are progressively wasting away.
But Carmela is brave and determined, and she won’t let her condition prevent her from leading as active a life as she can. During lockdown she was inspired by Joe Wicks’ workouts, and decided to start doing her own exercise videos along with her assistance dog Tinker. She also takes inspiration from the superhero Wonder Woman. Wearing a Wonder Woman outfit in her videos earned her the nickname Wonder Girl as she began raising tens of thousands of pounds for her chosen charity.
But this book is, as already stated, a fantasy in which Tinker uses her own very special magical power to whoosh them both off on magical adventures into space, and to lots of other exciting places.
Tinker’s magical propulsion system involves…. well, how can I put this? Perhaps some pages from the book might help…
Yes, that’s correct. Tinker the Stinker farts them on their adventures.
Profits from the sale of this book will also go towards Carmela’s JustGiving page rasing money for research into finding a cure for her condition.
