The Magic Bicycle has been reviewed by Booklist of the American Library Association and the School Library Journal. We hope you will take a moment to read an intriguing story about a young boy, Danny, his magic bicycle, and his talking cat. The Magic Bicycle was inspired by the House of Blue Lights northeast of Indianapolis, Indiana near the author's home while he was a teenager. Youngsters, and many not so young, considered it haunted. The property was bought for a housing development and a school by a life insurance company in the sixties.
The Author's interest in fantasy and his frequent moves and longing for old friends combine to provide the final motivation for the story.About the Author:
