Speedy McCready by Debbie Roxburgh
Light-hearted children's book looking at how families might have to create their own electricity when the National Grid starts to fail.
A light-hearted children's book which considers a world where families create their own electricity by using government- issued exercise bikes and treadmills. An hour on the bike buys you time to watch your favourite television programme or play on the XBox.
Ten-year-old Dillon invents a way or harnessing the energy created by his pet hamster, Speedy McCready, as he runs in his exercise wheel. His idea wins a national science competition making him a national hero. He even gets to meet the Queen and the Prime Minister.
