The illustrations are beautiful in this story, and the story of a bike messenger is well told in poetic form. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689821034, Hardcover)

Messenger, messenger,
keepin' the groove,
Always, always, on the move.

Morning's come around again, and Calvin Curbhopper, the messenger man, is on the go, zipping around from spot to spot, taking shortcuts through parking lots, steering through the midday blare of honking horns, his breath like a smokestack in the frosty air. Wind, snow, rain, sun, can't keep Calvin from making his run. And Robert Burleigh's rhythmic language keeps the groove right alongside him, further enlivened by Barry Root's energetic illustrations.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:49:46 -0400)

Calvin Curbhopper, a bicycle messenger, makes his way through the city in all kinds of conditions to make sure that his messages get delivered on time.
