Publisher Description:

Tom was laughed at for day dreaming. His dreams were of being an adventurer. One day he decided to prove everyone wrong and set off cycling round the world. Parts One and Two follow Tom crossing Europe and descending Africa, then pedalling through the Americas to Alaska. In Part Three, Tom is on the last leg of his journey where he continues to discover strange and amazing sights and meet a host of fun characters. He skids through the freezing temperatures of Siberia, and in Japan even shares a steaming hot pool with some surprised monkeys. He follows the Great Wall of China towards the mysterious lands of Central Asia and on crossing the world's largest inland sea, is at last biking through Europe towards his home in Yorkshire. Based on the author's personal experiences and with engaging illustrations, maps and handwritten journal entries throughout, this book provides an immersive experience for any young adventurer.

Category Description for Boy Who Biked the World Books:

What a fun series! Loosely based on the true story of the author, these books follow a boy named Tom as he decides he wants to ride his bike around the world. Each chapter covers a different country. At the end of each chapter are fun pages from Tom's journal where he shares the things he learned, the foods he ate, or the words he learned in the local language. The books read very easily and would make for a fun casual read or a geography project: read a chapter a day and take some time to do a little research about each country he travels through. 128 softcover pages with occasional black and white illustrations. - Laura
