The hilarious fox and bear double act from bestseller Chris Naylor-Ballesteros is back for a second adventure in the Nottingham Children's Book Award winning series! Bert is CERTAIN he can ride his bike as well as Frank, but he is very wobbly! And even when they BOTH try riding Frank's bike . . . it still goes very wrong! Will the best friends make it all the way down from the big hill? Of course! All they need is a little bit of confidence and trust in each other! This warm and entertaining story about friendship is guaranteed to get children giggling! Every Nosy Crow paperback picture book comes with a free 'Stories Aloud' audio recording - just scan the QR code and listen along!



This book is like me and my friend Eesa. I have a bike and it has a bit for my Dollie’s to ride on the back and special wheels.

This book was about someone called Bert that wanted to ride a bike, he believed in himself and Frank helped him and eventually he learnt to ride a bike.

Frank got Bert a special bike to help him, he wanted to say sorry. Bert ended up riding the bike home. They are kind to each other- we recommend this book

I liked that Bert kept trying really hard.

It’s a very funny book. My favourite character was Bert because he doesn’t know how to ride a bike and was funny when he was learning. He kept crashing.
