It’s probably fitting when your name is Macdonald you pick a character with Scottish heritage for book week. The fact that character also has a disability was really just a happy co-incidence, the reality is… it was “all about the hair”.
Mac’s choice this year was the impressive auror Alastor “Mad Eye” Moody, from Harry Potter. With perfect hair to pull of the look Mac was pretty impressed with himself.
Time constraints (and… oh, yeah, real life) meant we didn’t quite invent a recumbent wheelchair broomstick. Fortunately, the freezing wind was of no concern by the appropriate choice of Dad’s Driza-bone oilskin jacket keeping Mac totally snug throughout the book week parade – he certainly fared better than some of the other muggles whose costumes would have been ruined by the addition of a jacket.
