Maple Tree Press

THE BEST BOOK OF BIKES by Aimy Pinchuk (Maple Tree Press) teaches readers about the world’s most popular form of personal transportation through short, snappy, and often humorous writing. The author, who holds a Ph.D. in Engineering, covers bicycle history, mechanics, parts of a bicycle and their functions, BMX, and racing. Practical matters – how to get fitted for a bicycle, maintenance/repair, safety – are also addressed. Photographs and animated colour drawings appear on every page and make for a consistently appealing visual experience. This, the third book in Pinchuk’s Popular Mechanics for Kids series – is geared to bike fans aged eight to twelve mRb
