SELECTED AS A CBCA (Children's Book Council of Australia) NOTABLE PICTURE BOOK 2017 '..beautifully written and incredibly powerful..'
BOOKS AND PUBLISHING When you live in a village at the edge of the No-Go Desert, you need to make your own fun.

That's when you and your brothers get inventive and build a bike from scratch, using everyday items like an old milk pot (maybe mum is still using it, maybe not) and a used flour sack.

You can even make a numberplate from bark, if you want. The end result is a spectacular bike, perfect for going bumpity-bump over sandhills, past your fed-up mum and right through your mud-for-walls home. A delightful story from multi-award-winning author Maxine Beneba Clarke, beautifully illustrated by street artist Van T Rudd.
