The Lovereading4Kids comment

Not since Mrs Armitage on Wheels has a bike ride been the occasion of such wild and inventive hilarity and excitement! Monkey finds a bicycle (actually, he pinches it – we see him do it on the endpapers) and giraffe knows how to ride – well, sort of. After some graphic wobbles they career through the jungle picking up a variety of passengers along the way, until the inevitable crash! Julia Woolf’s illustrations are bold and bright, full of spontaneity and originality and never before have so many jungle creatures balanced on a bike! There’s another joke just for us on the final endpaper too, when the monkeys return the bike to its original owner. Great fun! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Giraffe on a Bicycle by Julia Woolf

Monkey has found a bicycle. Luckily giraffe knows how to ride it...sort of! But when a tentative tiger, three mischievous monkeys and a very flappy flamingo join in the fun, things start getting a little crowded. And with a whole host of other jungle animals keen to climb aboard, monkey and giraffe could be in for a very bumpy ride!

About the Author

Julia Woolf is an animation artist turned illustrator. She spent 20 years working in animation, including 12 years at Dreamworks in the States. However, on having her daughter, the world of illustration began to beckon and a while after returning to the UK, Julia enrolled in an MA in Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University. Giraffe on a Bicycle is her debut book, and is full of personality-packed characters, dynamic illustrations, wit, charm ... and bicycle parts! Julia lives with her family in Kent, near the countryside, seaside and woods - where she is yet to see a giraffe riding a bicycle.
