Andy Shane, Hero at Last

By Jennifer Richard Jacobson
Illustrated by Abby Carter

A bicycle-decorating contest provides Andy with a humorous and highly appreciated opportunity to save the hometown parade.

There are two things Andy Shane wants more than anything — to win the contest for best-decorated bike in the parade, and . . . to be a hero. He has a great idea for the bike part, although high-strung Dolores is upping the ante with her paper-daisy-covered helmets for her and her cat. But the second goal has Andy stumped, until the parade is in motion and his eagle eyes catch the reason why the drum corps has suddenly thrown the marchers out of whack. Pass the baton to a lovably low-key hero as he saves the day in an adventure for early chapter-book readers.

  • The sixth Andy Shane adventure
  • Perfect for emergent or reluctant readers
  • A warm and satisfying story that emphasizes family and friendship
