Description

Joe and Jay were best friends. There was nothing more fun than spending the day exploring on their bikes. But things have changed now. Jay is gone and Joe can't help but notice that his parents have forgotten that Jay's bike is still parked outside the school. Joe decides to take the bike home — to polish it and paint it up just like Jay would have liked. That is when the new kid Carlos offers to help — but he probably just wants to steal it. Then again, maybe there is more to Carlos's story than meets the eye. And maybe Joe has finally found a new friend to share the special place and the bike that has "that squeak" with.

About the Authors
Carolyn Beck first learned about letters when she was five. Right away she liked them. They make interesting sounds, like the s-s-s-sneaky S, the punchy P and the bouncy B. And best of all, in bunches they make WORDS! (Carolyn also discovered numbers and liked them too, but that is another story.) Carolyn lives in Toronto, Ontario.
