Bikes for Sale

The narrative voice in this story sings, simply sings, through the use of language that uses just a sprinkling of literary devices. BIKES FOR SALE is a story about a neighbourhood and making a new friend in a serendipitous way. It comes complete with the lowest of lows (what could be worse than not one, but two, bike crashes?), a stellar surprise that lifts the reader up again, a lemonade stand and stick collecting. Yes, stick collecting. Other than potentially giving children yet another idea for a rare collectible item to stash in their drawers, this story has no faults. Its illustrations are kid-friendly to the core, with animal characters that include a dog-walking cat. This picture book will warm your heart.
