The patchwork bike

2018

by Maxine Beneba Clarke and Van T. Rudd

"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), a bent bucket seat, and bashed tin-can handles. The end result is a spectacular bike, perfect for going bumpetty bump over sand hills, past your fed-up mum, and right through your mud-for-walls home"-- Back cover
