Watch out! Here comes Molly!
Molly is big enough and smart enough to ride a bike now - and
she loves it! Trouble is, Molly can't seem to stop running into
things. She keeps her eye on the objects in her path - like poles
and people - but for some reason she still hits them. Luckily,
she bumps into a driving instructor one day, and he gives Molly
some useful advice.
Using warmly colored and expressive illustrations, Eva Eriksson
once again gives readers an adorable little girl to cheer for as
she takes a crash course in bike riding.
Eva Eriksson is one of Sweden's most beloved creators of
books for children. She has written and/or illustrated many
books, including Molly Goes Shopping.
"Wonderfully funny. This is one of those welcome picture books that will have both children and their parents laughing out loud." -- Booklist
"Eriksson's colored pencil drawings skillfully express Molly's wide-eyed uncertainty before mastering her bike and her happy confidence afterward. Fans...will especially enjoy bumping into this persevering young pig again."
-- Starred, The Horn Book
"Molly is a fine heroine for youngsters, similarly grappling with the challenging tasks of everyday life, and little ones will quickly embrace this...affirming presentation of skills mastery." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Priceless. A quirky, winsome crash course for aspiring cyclists." -- Kirkus Reviews
"This book is laugh-out-loud funny. The book imparts a specific lesson on bike riding but with such sly wit that it could be read as a metaphor for life in general." -- Starred, School Library Journal
