Review: To young Ellery’s her bicycle is more than just a bicycle it’s magic and she takes it on many adventures, growing up with it and it magically grows with her. Her bicycle was her comfort and her best friend and they did everything together.

As she grew into an adult and had forgotten all about her bicycle it sat in waiting hoping she would be back one day and the magic of her old best friend can be rekindled.

I loved how sweet this story was, how she formed a deep connection with her bicycle and how magical it all was to her. It had beautiful illustrations and was written so sweetly, telling this wonderfully magic story.
