Title: Ben Rides On

Author: Matt Davies

KDL Description:


Ben rides his new bicycle the very, very long way to school, but Adrian Underbite, perhaps the world’s largest third-grader, takes the bike anyway, and later, when Ben finds Adrian in trouble, he must decide whether or not to help the larcenous bully.

Amazon Description:

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.
