Discover Africa by bicycle in book one of a delightful children's adaptation of Alastair Humphrey's journey around the world

 

In this charming caricature of Alastair Humphreys’ infamous circumnavigation of the world on his bike, children are swept along with the character of Tom, an adventurous boy who feels there must be more to life than school. The first part of The Boy Who Biked the World follows Tom leaving England, cycling through Europe and all the way through Africa to the tip of South Africa. Along the way, young readers are introduced not only to the various fascinating landscapes he passes through, but also to the various people who so happily embrace him as he traveled on his journey. With engaging illustrations, postcards, and journal entries throughout, this book provides an immersive experience for any young adventurer.
Industry Reviews
If you've been around the block a few times and learnt a lesson or two, think what you might have picked up going all the way round the world. That's what I did. I went round the world. On a bicycle. -- Alastair Humphreys
