Chipper and the Unicycleby Don M. Winn
Chipper Chipper the clown sets out to travel the world in search of a new act to keep the crowds entertained. When he sees a unicycle, it seems like just the thing. He figures he can learn to ride it with no trouble at all, since he can already ride a bicycle. How hard could it be? Really hard. After only one day of trying, Chipper takes the unicycle back to the store in frustration. But he learns that some pursuits take time and effort to master, and he learns about the importance of perseverance.
