When Rosie Met Anneka
"... the best book of its type I have read in decades." Classic Bike Guide
"I passed it to my nine year old son - a young man of few words - who pronounced it 'good'." Old Bike Mart
"... this is a great little book." Street Biker
If only a motorbike could talk! And in this charming, beautifully illustrated story they can! Or at least one very special bike does, a BSA A10 called Anneka, that's nearly 50 years old and in need of some tender loving care. But Anneka only talks to Rosie as she and her father struggle not only to restore the bike but also to find an answer to the age-old mystery of the 3000 year old White Horse at Uffington in Oxfordshire - the one thing which can save her Dad's job at the local university archaeological department.
A lovely book sure to spark interest in the ancient places and monuments of England, as well as one which shares fully the joy of motorcycling and classic motorcycle restoration.
Steve Wilson is a well-known journalist who regularly writes for Classic Bike Guide and is the author of many books on motorcycling and several novels. Here, he turns his hand to writing for children in a book that will appeal not just to children but to their Dads and Mums, not to mention Grandparents and all who own and ride motorcycles - especially BSAs.
