The illustrations are slightly retro in style, but also bold and interesting. I liked the simplicity of the 4-color print

I would use this book for lower elementary students when teaching them the word meanings of: below, beneath, above, over and through.

a story about a bike ride through a town, by the sea, and through the country. Seeing life through twists and turns. Demonstrating that life is about the journey, not the destination.

32 months - We have enjoyed reading and talking about this bicycle journey along a long road. The text is minimal but the story is extensive. The illustrations are wonderful, in five flat colors reminiscent of wood block. The bonus, it's written by a Canadian author. ( )

This book is propelled by the artwork as readers follow a person's journey on their bike down a long yellow road.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316129259, Hardcover)

Follow that road!

Speed off on an eventful bicycle ride along the bold yellow road that cuts through town, by the sea, and through the country. Ride up and around, along and through, out and down.

Frank's striking graphic style is executed in just five joyous colors, and his spare, rhythmic language is infectious.

Hit a bump?
Get back on track!
Reach the end?
Start again!

Illustrations and brief text evoke a bicycle ride, with its ups and downs, sweeping turns, and vivid views.
