Ben loves his new bike. In fact, he loves it so much he even likes riding to school (especially if he can take the long way around)! That is, until an encounter with the local bully, Adrian Underbite, leaves Ben bike-less. When Ben discovers where his bike actually is, the reader is in for a dramatic, and literal, cliffhanger.

Will Ben ever be able to get his bike back?

Find out in this hilarious and tender tale by Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Matt Davies.

Praise for Ben Rides On

"Full of warmth, humor and a welcome lesson about bullies, Davies’s debut cries out for a follow-up." -- The New York Times

"Illustration comes naturally to Davies—his editorial cartoons won him a Pulitzer Prize in 2004—and this satisfying tale of a boy, his beloved bicycle, and the bully who steals it is a fine debut."--Publishers Weekly

*"Great amusement for the bold and timid alike." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

 
 

"Facial expressions, gestures, postures, perspectives: all conspire, with a ragged, raucous elegance, to make Ben Rides On an exceptional, and exceptionally likable, tale." -- School Library Journal

"Davies is a Pulitzer Prize–winning political cartoonist, and his style carries over to the book: scratchy and unruly pen drawings with scribbled details and shading that often burst from their outlines are filled in with pale watercolors." -- BCCB
