New Mark Pett book hits bookstores tomorrow

From the Deseret News:

Mark Pett?s pencil and watercolor spreads tell the story ? and the story within the story ? in “The Girl and the Bicycle.” In this wordless picture book, a button-nosed girl tugs her brother along, causing him to lose his ice cream cone on the sidewalk, as she longs for the bicycle in a toy store window.

Without adequate funds to buy the bicycle, she sets up a lemonade stand, sells old toys and helps an older woman with chores. By spring, the girl has enough money. She plans her purchase, only to find the bicycle gone.

His book launch party is tomorrow at Kings English Bookshop for those of you who are local to Salt Lake City. I’ve seen some of the originals for this. Once again, Mark has created a timeless classic.
