90 pp, 8vo (8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0701124490 B&w illustrations by Papas. "Soumchi was delighted with the bicycle. It was the best present his Uncle Zemach had ever given him, even if it was a girl's bike without a crossbar. Wha t did he care if the other boys in the neighbourhood mocked him; he knew they were just jealous. Besides, on his bicycle he could get right away from all of them, ride south out of the city across the deserts towards the heart of Africa a n d t h e s o u rce of the River Zambezi....This warm, funny story about the real and imaginary life of an eleven-year-old boy is laid in Jerusalem just after the Second World War, when British forces still occupied Palestine and the Jewish people s we r e st ru g gl in g to establish a homeland there." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling. VG+/VG+
