Get on Your Bike

(4) K-3 Translated by Laura Watkinson. Illustrated by Philip Hopman. In this Dutch import, after two friends--dog William and panda Bobby--have an argument, the former says, "Just get on your bike and leave!" Leave Bobby does: he rides around the animal-populated city, blowing off steam until he feels contrite. Like bicycling Bobby, the story meanders, but readers will enjoy the seek-and-find aspect as Bobby is practically Waldo-like in the bustling oversize spreads.
