Sometimes it can be difficult to find a book for your son or daughter that features a strong female role model doing something that is typically considered boyish, like riding bikes.
Sports and motor vehicle books tend to be targeted more towards boys than girls, but this doesn’t reflect reality. In author Amanda Greenslade’s new series, Myra and the Magic Motorcycle, the lead character is a girl from Australia who finds a magic motorcycle in her back shed. With her bravery and desire to help people, Myra sets off on an unexpected adventure. Travelling through the Earth to reach Bermuda, the magic motorcycle takes Myra right where her help is needed, and she discovers a few things about her new magic bike along the way.
