Eric's Big Day

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 colourful adventure on wheels for children aged 4-8. Full of fun and authentic cycling flavour, you and your children 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. Beautifully illustrated with colour drawings.
