The Girl and the Bicycle ; written and illus. Simon, Trade ed. In this wordless picture book, a little girl spies a snazzy green bicycle in a shop window and immediately starts saving in order to buy it. A kindly older woman takes her up on her offer to rake leaves, and the girl continues to help the woman with other odd jobs as the seasons change until she finally has enough for the bike. Taken aback when she finds that the bike has been sold, she instead buys the tricycle that was also in the window and gives it to her jubilant brother. The neighbor lady then surprises her with a gift: the coveted green bike, topped with a big bow.
