Tom dreamed of being an adventurer. But people told him he was crazy, so he decided to prove them wrong by cycling round the world! Books One and Two follow Tom crossing Europe and descending Africa, then pedalling through the Americas to Alaska. In Part Three - the last leg of his journey - he continues to have amazing experiences. He tackles the freezing temperatures of Siberia, shares a steaming pool with monkeys in Japan, follows the Great Wall of China and crosses the world's largest inland sea. Finally, he bikes back home to Yorkshire. Tom learns about the world, and himself, as he tackles this epic journey. Based on the author's personal adventure and with engaging illustrations, maps and handwritten journal entries throughout, this book provides an immersive experience for any young adventurer.
