Ellery’s Magic Bicycle is a playful story about a young girl who finds a magical purple bicycle that takes her on many adventures. As Ellery grows, so does her magical bicycle—the pair experience many life lessons together. However, when Ellery grows up, she begins to forget the special bond the two share until one day, she sees her daughter enjoying a bicycle. At this moment, Ellery remembers the joy her magical purple bicycle brings her.
Author Maria Monte has created a sweet story where readers can watch Ellery grow from childhood to adulthood. When Ellery’s best friend moves away, Monte has Ellery handle the tough emotions with kindness and grace so that readers will be able to empathize. Meanwhile, the lively and cheerful illustrations drawn by Zoe Saunders highlight the whimsy of the magic purple bike and the adventures it provides.
Older readers will recognize and enjoy watching the growth of Ellery—they may reminisce about their childhood adventures. In comparison, younger readers will likely relate to Ellery and her kindness towards others. Ellery’s Magic Bicycle is a wonderful story for readers of all ages. It would make an excellent addition to any library.
