The second Bert and Frank book and this time Bert (our bear) is trying to ride a bicycle, but will it go right? Or not?
I was absolutely delighted when I spotted this book over at Netgalley. I had just recently (in November/October) finished the first book in Dutch and I was eager to get even more from this duo.
In this book we have lots of bicycles, some sad animals whose tails are not happy, a pond dive, and more. Because Bert is trying to bicycle! Frank is pretty good at it… but Bert? Bert, I think he just needs a better bicycle. Or side-wheels. You know the ones that kids have when they cannot ride it safely yet? I was curious to see what solution our duo would go for and I can honestly tell you that I was very much surprised at what happened next. Haha. I hadn’t expected that, but it was a sweet solution (though I am not sure about Frank’s body and agreeing to the plan). It made me laugh, it made me snicker, and I loved Frank’s perseverance.
But yeah, of course this isn’t a solution! But I loved what followed. And I loved that it was more the case of x rather than y. Yes, keeping it vague. You will have to read the book.
The ending, just like in the first Frank and Bert, was one that came out of the left field and I had such a laugh. XD
The art was fab once more. I loved how the friends were drawn, but also animals and surroundings. So fun~
All in all, I hope that this duo will have many more adventures, because I need more! I would recommend it! Perfect for kids that are learning how to use a bicycle.
