Dixie O'Day on his Bike
The friendship between Dixie and Percy is in peril when a newcomer to the area encourages them to take up cycling. This is the latest instalment in the Dixie O'Day series and is one of the best. The pictures and text work very well together.
There are moments of mild peril that my five year old worried about- she was upset that Percy was being ignored - but it all was sorted out quickly.
There are 7 short chapters allowing early readers to read this themselves in a week but it is short enough for an adult to read in one or two evenings.
