About this product
- DescriptionIn 2008, Colin Thompson visited Cambodia with Save the Children. Struck by the way the humble bicycle was central to so many people's lives, he was inspired to create The Bicycle, his second picture book for the charity. The Bicycle features separate illustrations from internationally acclaimed artists - including Quentin Blake, Shaun Tan, Tony Ross and Freya Blackwood - which celebrate the liberating joy of two wheels. Sprinkled throughout are delightful quotes from famous people, as well as quotes from Cambodian children such as 14-year-old Dany, who describes his bicycle as his 'best friend'. All royalties from the sale of The Bicycle will go to Save the Children, an organisation that works to improve the quality of children's lives around the world.
