Following the successful format of the 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs series, Simon Warren rides, photographs, describes, maps and profiles the 100 greatest climbs of the Tour de France. Published in the same unique â€˜cycling jersey pocket sizedâ€™ format as Simonâ€™s earlier books, this will be his biggest book to date, with each climb given a spread. There have been large format illustrated books on the hills of the tour published in the past, but none in such a portable format, and none which so vividly describe the experience of cycling these hills from the point of view of an amateur cyclist.
Twelve-year old Martin has only just moved to a new town when he encounters some mean kids tormenting a small Jack Russell terrier puppy, lost and alone. Martin saves him, brings him home, and eventually gives him a name-Cool Shoes. Now the puppy has a home and a friend, and Martin knows he'll never be lonely again. Martin's mom and the squirrels take a liking to Cool Shoes, but the puppy needs to play with other dogs, too. One day at the dog park, Martin makes the acquaintance of Zaria, who also owns a Jack Russell. Now both Martin and Cool Shoes have new friends, and together, they can stand up to any foe! The friends need to be strong together, because there are bullies everywhere. Martin and Cool Shoes learn that some people just don't want to get along, but they also learn that all people can get along, if only they try. This is the story of a boy and his rescue dog, but it's also about friendship, family, and the bravery it takes to do the right thing.
