REVIEWED BY RORY, 9, WA
Zoe, Max and the Bicycle Bus by Steven Herrick, University of Queensland Press, ISBN 9780702263002
The publisher provided a review copy of this book.
Zoe, Max and the Bicycle Bus is a book written in different people’s points of view as well as it’s written in verse
which means the writing is like a big poem that goes for the entire book. It's like the writing above.
Zoe, Max and the Bicycle Bus is a book about eight kids and one teacher (and also a crossing guard, but he doesn’t ride his bike to school) who all love to ride their bikes to school, but each day when they ride to school the cars on the side of the road get closer and closer to the bike lane they all ride in. Can they all stop the cars getting closer in time or is it too late?
My favourite part in the book is when they decide to ride their bikes to school, rather than a car, because cars can pollute the environment.
My favourite character is actually all of them since they work together all the time! Overall, I’d recommend this book to anyone age 9+. I’d rate it nine out of ten, just because with 10 people it’s a bit hard to keep track of the characters!
Zoe, Max and the Bicycle Bus is a funny and inspiring story that I strongly recommend.
