ABOUT THIS BOOK

Bestselling classic The Stories Julian Tells was just the beginning! Get ready for more of Julian's wonderful imagination in the Julian's World chapter book series!  

Julian isn’t afraid of lions or tigers, but he is scared of . . . bicycles?
 
Julian’s friend Gloria has a brand-new bicycle. She makes riding it look easy, but Julian is scared. Bicycles are shiny, whizzing, wobbly things. And he’s not ready to ride one. But he can’t tell Gloria he’s scared, so he tells a fib instead. He almost gets away with it . . . until the fib backfires and he’s got an even bigger problem! 

"This is a perfectly constructed young reader, with neat turns in the plot, a loving family, and engaging dialogue." —Kirkus Reviews

A Library of Congress Children's Book of the Year

QUOTES

"Librarians wanting stories with black protagonists will especially welcome this."--Booklist.

"When his best friend, Gloria, gets a new bike, Julian (7) is dismayed: he doesn't want to learn to ride, because he's afraid of falling. In a satisfying conclusion, Julian gets his own bike as a reward for considerable labor, and then learns what fun it can be to ride. This is a perfectly constructed young reader, with neat turns in the plot, a loving family, and engaging dialogue."--(pointer) Kirkus.

“Cameron has done an excellent job of portraying children’s fears and their desire to hide them. . . . [A] superb choice for readers going from easy readers to chapter books.”–School Library Journal
