The Runaway Bicycle


Responsibility and obedience are great qualities to have, but we often have to go through hard lessons to learn them. In the Runaway Bicycle, Adwoa Badoe takes us on a madcap ride, teaching us that actions do indeed have consequences, and sometimes, they are more frightening than fun!
