Meet Bibsy Cross, the precocious, regular-pegular eight-year-old who daydreams of winning her library's bike-a-thon fundraiser in the second installment of this charming chapter book series.

Most things are easy-peasy, regular-pegular for Bibsy Cross. She loves her parents, her cat, her best friend, Natia. She loves school and the library. And she loves riding her bike. Sometimes, she pretends it's her chariot. 

Bibsy's library is hosting a bike-a-thon to raise money to buy books. And Bibsy is determined to earn the most donations. That way she can be a winner!

But has Bibsy been spinning her wheels with the wrong intentions?
