Summary
When you live in a village at the edge of the No-Go Desert, you need to make your own fun. That's when you and your brothers get inventive and build a bike from scratch, using everyday items like an old milk pot (maybe mum is still using it, maybe not) and a used flour sack. You can even make a numberplate from bark, if you want. The end result is a spectacular bike, perfect for going bumpity-bump over sandhills, past your fed-up mum and right through your mud-for-walls home
Summary
A child living in a mud house in a village on the edge of a forbidding desert teams up with her brothers to build a creative bicycle from everyday items and embarks on an adventure filled with laughter and bumpy rides over sand hills.
