It's a big day for Eric, the day of the bike race. His knapsack packed, Eric rides to Emily's for a picnic near the finish. But what's that splashing in the river? A very wet bike racer! Who's that sobbing by the street sign? A lost rider! Eric pauses to aid wayward bike racers with useful items from his knapsack, but will he be late to see the finish? The cheers of a crowd surprise Eric, but where oh where is Emily? Eric's Big Day is a colorful adventure on wheels for children 4-8. Full of fun and authentic cycling flavor, you and your kids will enjoy this lighthearted tale of a boy who helps others and finds himself a winner, all while simply meeting a friend for a picnic.

MEDIA REVIEWS
PubWest Book Design Contest Silver Award Winner: Children's/Young Adult Illustrated "Eric's Big Day is an adorable story with charming illustrations that even adults can appreciate" |A beautifully illustrated, up-tempo adventure that teaches the value of helping others." -- Bicycling magazine "A sweet and lovely little storybook by London-based writer and illustrator Rod Waters" |Perfect for bike-crazed kids and parents." -- Experience Life magazine "A sweet story about helping strangers in need." -- School Library Journal "First published in France, this winsome picture book has vitality, careful pacing, and an unexpected twist near the end. Children will enjoy watching the capable boy help inept adult cyclists with his can-do attitude and his trusty supplies, and they'll root for a happy ending for him and for Emily. Created by an English writer-illustrator-cyclist, the story holds together well, but the beautifully drawn, spare ink drawings, tinted with restrained watercolor washes, really make this picture book stand out." -- Booklist of the American Library Association "A children's book you can buy at a bike shop? Yep. " |[A] beautifully illustrated, whimsical read for kids about a boy's adventure as he's drawn into a bike race." --Triathlete magazine "Eric's Big Day is a beautifully written and drawn children's book by Brit Rod Waters." -- Slowtwitch.com "The art is cute, simple and evocative" |The combination of bicycles and values I believe in makes this book a big winner." -- Red Kite Prayer
