Children's LiteratureFind out just about everything you've ever wanted to know about the bicycle—its history (Is that really a picture of a bicycle drawn in an Egyptian tomb?), how and why bikes work, the different types of bikes you could own, the rules of the road, safety (always wear a helmet), bike maintenance basics and much, much more. Tired of just pedaling around your neighborhood? Then check out the chapters that tell you how to organize an all-day bike ride or a bike rodeo where you can compete in the two-wheel twist or the snail. An informative and thoroughly fun-to-read book that every bike rider—beginner and expert alike—will enjoy. At the end of the book, readers will find pages with weird facts, a diagram of a bicycle with all the parts labeled, a bibliography and an index. Illustrated with black and white cartoon-like drawings. 2004, Dutton Children's Book/Penguin Young Readers, Ages 9 to 14.
