Pedal It! How Bicycles are Changing the World
by Michelle Mulder
Mulder is a cycling enthusiast who pedals nearly everywhere. She frequently mentions her cycling experiences throughout her book; a personal touch that adds interest both to the subject matter and overall tone. Chapters take readers through the invention of the bicycle, the advantages of owning a bicycle, and the many ways bicycles are used around the world. The many photographs complement the text excellently; my favourite is of the Vietnamese goldfish seller!
