In September 2008, Colin Thompson visited Cambodia with Save the Children. Struck by the way the humble bicycle was central to so many people lives, he was inspired to create THE BICYCLE, his second picture book for the organisation. Featuring the illustrations of fourteen internationally acclaimed artists, including Quentin Blake, Tony Ross, Shaun Tan and Freya Blackwood, THE BICYCLE is a celebration of how much we can help others through simple acts of charity.
All royalties from the sale of this book will go to Save the Children, an organisation that works to improve the quality of children's lives around the world.
'Today I read this book and it changed my life. Lots of people have told me that we are a very lucky world but when I read this book I discovered I was way more luckier than I thought I was. I didn't know that there was a country that was slowly dissolving happiness' -- Gretta Ray, 9, writing about DUST, our first book for Save the Children.
