Age range 9 to 12
Tom dreams of being an adventurer. Everyone tells him he's
crazy, so he decides to prove them wrong by going around the
world on his bike! The first book of Tom's adventures follows
him across Europe and from the top to the bottom of Africa.
In volume two, Tom heads north from the tip of South
America and makes his way through the Americas. With a
long `uphill' struggle facing him, Tom has the massive Andes
and raging Amazon to contend with in South America, deserts
and grizzly bears in North America, and a colourful array
of characters all along the way. With engaging illustrations,
maps, and handwritten journal entries throughout, this book
provides an immersive experience for any young adventurer.
