Tilly and Friends Let's Get Wheeling! by Polly Dunbar

Tilly's tricycle is too small for her, but it's a perfect fit for Hector. There's a toy car for Pru, a skateboard for Doodle, a scooter for Tiptoe, and Tumpty has a smart set of wheels on his four roller-skates! Everyone's having wheelie good fun - but why isn't Tilly riding her new red bike? The friends soon realize that Tilly might need a helping hand to get started on two wheels so that she can join in with the wheelie day too.

Tilly and Friends is currently airing on CBeebies, with 52 episodes in the series.
