Vera carefully strapped the helmet on. Father held the bike and she mounted the seat. Her feet fit the pedals perfectly. Vera felt very big.

Spunky Vera is back and riding a bike in a winning new adventure

Vera loves her shiny red tricycle, even if she is a little too big for it. When it gets stolen one day at the park, Vera is heartbroken, until she inherits her sister Elaine's old green bicycle, which Father paints purple-Vera's favorite color. As long as someone is around to help Vera start and stop, she's set to go. But what happens when Vera suddenly finds she's riding on her own? Will she be brave enough to use the brakes?

Once again, Vera Rosenberry offers a reassuring story about an exciting childhood experience-all through the lens of one indomitable heroine.
