Ashley MacEachern has often been to the Tour de France, where she saw her friend Lance Armstrong win each time. A former Nike executive, she is now a full-time writer. She lives with her husband and three young sons, including twins, in Portland, Oregon.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2—This intensely bright and busy picture book gives a brief account of the Tour de France, the "hardest, longest, craziest, trickiest bike race ever," and the man who has broken the record seven consecutive times, Lance Armstrong. His experiences over several years have been condensed into a single event: for instance, he's stung by a bee, suffers a stomach virus, and crashes when a spectator's backpack gets too close. At the end of the book, there's a note from the athlete emphasizing his "never quit" message and an afterword with some background information about him and the Tour. Overall, this book is a good example of style suiting content. The famously chaotic race is illustrated with a dizzying amount of detail, so much so that readers are invited to pore over the computer-generated artwork to spot recurring images. Today's visually sophisticated kids, especially those who like slick animation, will gravitate to this equally slick book.—Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL
