A runaway wheel takes a bouncy, bumpy, noisy journey through town.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
PreSchool-- A runaway bicycle wheel bounces away from a boy and embarks on a spirited adventure down a hill and through town. The slight story is told as a rollicking sound poem that is sure to amuse young audiences ("pa-da-rump-pump-pump") and encourage their participation ("Oh no! See it go!"). As the wheel slowly climbs to the top of a new crest, the action and the book turn 90 and the errant wheel makes its way back to the waiting boy. Hurd's vibrant double-page collages literally bound on and off the pages. Reminiscent of Ezra Jack Keats, the simple, graphic cut-out shapes and primary colored dots that mark the wheel's path accent the fresh, lively, and humorous illustrations. A picture book that begs to be read aloud, this one is a visual and auditory delight.

In this imaginative journey, a runaway bicycle wheel careens over hill and dale. PW said, "Hurd's pictures are as vibrant and out of the ordinary as Dodds's sprightly text, giving the book an appealing exuberance. Children will be delighted by the display of colors and written approximation of sounds." Ages 3-6.
