THE BIG OL' BIKE
Big things are happening in Little Springs…
Everything about Oliver is small, from his footprint to his glasses—and a trio of bullies never let him forget it. When Oliver receives a special old bike for his birthday, he rides tall for the first time. But, the meanest bully in school doesn’t like that at all. Oliver finds himself challenged to a race. Now, he’ll have to be bigger than he ever imagined in order to prove heroes come in small packages too.
For ages 7 - 10.
Longer than average for this age range, The Big Ol' Bike is meant to be transitional between chapter books and middle grade novels. Themes of bullying, friendship, and finding confidence are explored within this story.

You're only given one little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it..

My little spark of madness shows itself in many different creative forms - and perhaps a smidge in my sense of humor too. It causes all kinds of wonderful mischief in my life. I absolutely love the quotes above. I encourage everyone out there to find your own unique spark. When you do, embrace it, nurture it, and let it grow - for it makes us who we are.
