Discover Africa by bicycle in book one of a delightful children's adaptation of Alastair Humphrey's journey around the world


In this charming caricature of Alastair Humphreys’ infamous circumnavigation of the world on his bike, children are swept along with the character of Tom, an adventurous boy who feels there must be more to life than school.

With engaging illustrations, postcards, and journal entries throughout, this book provides an immersive experience for any young adventurer.
