A cartoonist reveals the latest installment of his series on cool animals who happen to ride motorcycles, with this new illustrated book released by Dog Ear Publishing.
Seeing the world from the back of a motorcycle is a fun way for a youngster to relax and connect with an adult. That’s the message in this new book on animals riding motorcycles, the fourth in a series by cartoonist Paul Jamiol. The stars of this book are the young animals, who are related to the adult characters featured in Jamiol’s first two books. The youngsters introduce the adults and their jobs, clearly showing the pride they have in what their adults do for a living.
“Bikers Are Animals 4: Working and Riding” includes such characters as Ela and her mom Sa-Rah (a hawk) who owns a bakery; they check out the scenery on their ride home. Little T’s dad Trash works at a rehab center; these two cool bears love their Sunday rides. Musician Prowla the puma has her own rock band, and picks up her daughter Prowlinda after school on her bike. Tac the young lion and his big brother Tourk (who creates videogames) love to ride together. Doing things together is the message that resonates throughout this book.
The colorful cartoon illustrations give children subtle safety lessons, as all the young critters wear helmets and proper clothing. Gar and his dad, Anvil, check out their bike to make sure it’s safe before they start riding. At the end of the book, a list of safety tips reinforces the importance of motorcycle safety in a not-so-subtle way, describing how to make every ride both fun and safe.
Author and illustrator Paul Jamiol is an avid motorcyclist who has been recognized locally, nationally and internationally for his artwork.
