Charlie would love a bike more than anything but his family can’t afford one. When he sees an old bike frame left for the refuse collection his plans to create his own bike from scrap begin.

Charlie Harte and His Two-Wheeled Tiger by Frank Murphy

Tiger becomes the coolest bike in the neighbourhood with its black, white and yellow stripes, and even though it comes last in the school sports bike race, it has hidden powers and takes on a whole life of its own. Charlie’s bike may not be “cool” but it sure is different. Charlie’s bike can talk!!

Charlie Harte and His Two-Wheeled Tiger is a Red Flag Reader from O’Brien Press. Divided into twenty chapters it will give young readers the feeling of reading a “real” book without presenting them with a difficult vocabulary. The story introduces the many interesting themes that children will identify with in a language that’s both humourous and meaningful.
