Mulga Bill's Bicycle

'Twas Mulga Bill from Eaglehawk that caught the cycling craze...

This is the hilarious story of boastful Mulga Bill, who thinks he's much better at cycling than he turns out to be. A resounding crash into Dead Man's Creek sends him back to his original mode of transport - his trusty horse.

Paterson's verse truly captures the spirit of the Australian bush and a time gone by, whilst the illustrations from sisters Deborah and Kilmeny Niland are wonderfully evocative and funny.

Paul Weingott is as charming as ever and reads this wonderful ballad with enthusiasm and some great accents.
