THE BIG OL' BIKE
by Rachael Clarke
Everything about Oliver is small, from his footprint to his glasses-and a trio of bullies never let him forget it. When Oliver receives his grandfather's old bike for his birthday, he rides tall for the first time. But the meanest bully in school doesn't like that at all. Oliver quickly finds himself challenged to a race. Now, he'll have to be bigger than he ever imagined in order to prove heroes come in small packages too.
The Big Ol' Bike is a contemporary slice of life for ages 7-10, meant to be transitional between chapter books and middle grade novels. Themes of bullying, family, friendship, confidence, and community are all explored. Come hang out with Oliver, Austin, and Sue, as they experience excitement, setbacks, and adventure together.
WARNING: Reading this book may cause an urgent need to ride your bike. Don't be alarmed. The feeling will pass. But don't let it. ;)
