The Man Who Rode His 10-Speed Bicycle to The Moon
I was attracted to this book by Bernard Fischman because of its whimsical illustrations and its unique size. The edging of the paper itself is unusual—a teal color that matches the color of the water on the cover. The book is all of 100 pages, yet it's an account of a lonely man who rides his bicycle around the streets of New York City and discovers he is truly not alone and that bicycles are often magical transportation. It is a sweetly written story, one that left me with an urge to locate more of Bernard Fischman's writing, but it appears that this is his only work.
