Praise

"Librarians wanting stories with black protagonists will especially welcome this."–Booklist.

"When his best friend, Gloria, gets a new bike, Julian (7) is dismayed: he doesn’t want to learn to ride, because he’s afraid of falling. In a satisfying conclusion, Julian gets his own bike as a reward for considerable labor, and then learns what fun it can be to ride. This is a perfectly constructed young reader, with neat turns in the plot, a loving family, and engaging dialogue."–(pointer) Kirkus.

“Cameron has done an excellent job of portraying children’s fears and their desire to hide them. . . . [A] superb choice for readers going from easy readers to chapter books.”–School Library Journal
