Item description for Marta and the Bicycle by Albertine Germano Zullo...
Marta is no ordinary cow. Marta is different (she's orange, for a start). Marta wants something more. She wants to go. She wants to ride. She wants to feel the wind in her face, the pedals under her hooves. She wants to win the big bike race. And when Marta wants something, she makes it happen. But first she has to build a bicycle. And then she has to learn to ride it. Is there enough time before the race?

Wacky Cow Tale Feb 8, 2007
Marta and the Bicycle by Swiss author Germano Zullo is a tale of great imagination. I had no idea that cows loved to watch trains pass. While the other cows stare in wonder, Marta sees some bicyclists. It is love at first sight. Marta makes her own bike and soon masters riding. What adventures Marta has on that bike. Albertine's illustrations are wacky, charming, and sometimes hilarious. This tale is also available in Spanish as Marta Y La Bicicleta/ Marta and the Bicycle.

A delightful tale! Dec 16, 2002
This whimsical story isn't just for kids. It's for anyone who likes bicycles, cows, and/or is named Marta. I bought it for my adult friend named Marta, and she loves it! It has a surprise at the end that makes it a sure-favorite with balloonists also. The illustrations are colorful and funny, and Marta herself is a big hero in the cow community. Don't miss this delightful book!
