From School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-"Now that he had the bicycle of his dreams, Ben Lukin loved going to school." And what adventures he has en route: tunneling through water pipes, zipping over aqueducts, leaping over a stream bed filled with sharks. Does this sound like a circuitous route to class? You bet it is. Once he arrives at Watson Elementary, Ben must face Adrian Underbite, world's largest third grader. This witty and wonderful story revolves around Ben, Adrian, and Ben's bike and has a lot to say-in sometimes delightfully sophisticated words-about bullying, charity, and redemption. Davies's cartoons are simply the bees' knees. Facial expressions, gestures, postures, perspectives: all conspire, with a ragged, raucous elegance, to make Ben Rides On an exceptional, and exceptionally likable, tale.-Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NYα(c) Copyright 2013.

“Full of warmth, humor and a welcome lesson about bullies, Davies's debut cries out for a follow-up.” ―The New York Times
“Illustration comes naturally to Davies--his editorial cartoons won him a Pulitzer Prize in 2004--and this satisfying tale of a boy, his beloved bicycle, and the bully who steals it is a fine debut.” ―Publishers Weekly
“*Great amusement for the bold and timid alike.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“Facial expressions, gestures, postures, perspectives: all conspire, with a ragged, raucous elegance, to make Ben Rides On an exceptional, and exceptionally likable, tale.” ―School Library Journal
“Davies is a Pulitzer Prize–winning political cartoonist, and his style carries over to the book: scratchy and unruly pen drawings with scribbled details and shading that often burst from their outlines are filled in with pale watercolors.” ―BCCB
