Nona's bicycle is old and worn out, and she really wants a new one. But not just any bike -- a Deluxe Red Racer! Nona's parents don't see why they should buy her a new bike when her old one is perfectly good. Then Nona has a wicked thought: "What if my old bicycle disappeared?" She tries rolling it off a cliff and pushing it off a pier, but she just can't get rid of it! What can she do? Finally she thinks she's found the best solution of all -- but there's a big surprise in store for Nona!

From the Publisher:

Nona's bicycle is old and worn out. The spokes are bent, the paint is chipped, and the chain falls off at the worst moments. "Clunker, clunker, clunker," the neighborhood kids tease. "Nona's got a junker!" Nona wants a new bike, and not just any bike-- a Deluxe Red Racer. But her parents don't see why they should buy her a new bike when she already has one. Then Nona has a Wicked Thought: What if my old bicycle disappeared? Nona's schemes to get rid of her old bike and get a new one build up to a dramatic climax that will leave young readers breathless. This exciting story, illustrated in brilliant color, features a spunky heroine, plenty of humor, and a message that parents and children will appreciate.

About the Author:

Audrey Wood says this about The Red Racer, her first digitally illustrated children's book: "It's all my son's fault. One evening Bruce Robert challenged me to draw a picture on his computer. I sat down convinced I would hate it, I had never touched a computer before. I didn't get up out of his chair until three a.m. When I staggered off to bed I was already a digital illustrator...All of the illustrations for The Red Racer were drawn with a digital pen on a digital tablet by my hand. I mixed the colors on my digital palette, created digital pens, and designed the textured backgrounds." Ms. Wood lives with her husband in Santa Barbara, California.
