A little girl sees a shiny new bicycle in the shop window. She hurries home to see if she has enough money in her piggy bank, but when she comes up short, she knocks on the doors of her neighbours, hoping to do their yard work. They all turn her away except for a kindly old woman.

The woman and the girl work through the seasons, side by side. They form a tender friendship. When the weather warms, the girl finally has enough money for the bicycle. She runs back to the store, but the bicycle is gone! What happens next shows the reward of hard work and the true meaning of generosity.

Wordless, timeless, and classic, The Girl and the Bicycle carries a message of selflessness and sweet surprises and makes an ideal gift for graduations and other special occasions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Like an old black-and-white movie, this companion to The Boy and the Airplane (2013) will remain charming and relevant--the old story about what you get when you give never really gets old." * Kirkus Reviews *
"It's not easy to celebrate simple virtues in an age of irony, but Pett succeeds." * Publishers Weekly *
"Pett is a refreshing presence in children's literature . . . [The Girl and the Bicycle] resonate[s] with a warmth and sincerity that is real and rewarding." -- Julie Danielson * Kirkus Reviews *
