A gorgeous picture book about our diverse and wonderful world from award-winning author Maxine Beneba Clarke and illustrator Isobel Knowles.

PRAISE FOR THE PATCHWORK BIKE
‘Like all the best writing, The Patchwork Bike asks more questions than it answers, making it a great conversation starter to learn more about other cultures, but it’s also a delightful picture book for kids aged three and up that depicts the universal joy that riding a bike bestows.’ – Books+Publishing

‘This is a wonderfully fast-moving picture book that celebrates the rebellious, the inventive and the just plain entertaining spirit of kids who are left to, rather than on their own devices.’ – Picture Book Perusal

Reviews

Wide Big World is a cheerful and direct celebration of difference that uses the natural wonders of the world to highlight the diversity of experiences around us ... This book would be a great starting point for conversations about fostering positive relationships with others and taking the initiative to practice inclusivity, both at home and at school.
