The Patchwork Bike

What's the best fun in the whole village? Riding the patchwork bike we made! A joyous picture book for children by award-winning author Maxine Beneba Clarke. 

When you live in a village at the edge of the No-Go Desert, you need to make your own fun. That's when you and your brothers get inventive and build a bike from scratch, using everyday items like an old milk pot (maybe mum is still using it, maybe not) and a used flour sack. You can even make a number plate from bark, if you want. The end result is a spectacular bike, perfect for going bumpity-bump over sand hills, past your fed-up mum and right through your mud-for-walls home.
