Discover Africa by bicycle in book 1 of a delightful children’s adaptation of Alastair Humphrey’s journey around the world.
In this charming caricature of Alastair Humphreys’ infamous circumnavigation of the world on his bike, children are swept along with the character of Tom, an adventurous boy who feels there must be more to life than school.
The first part of The Boy Who Biked the World follows Tom leaving England, cycling through Europe and all the way through Africa to the tip of South Africa.

If you've been around the block a few times and learnt a lesson or two, think what you might have picked up going all the way round the world. That's what I did. I went round the world. On a bicycle. -- Alastair Humphreys
