Product Description

"Once there was a magic bicycle that found a boy," begins this tale of adventure and suspense. When John Kramer comes across and old, rusty Spirit Flyer bicycle, he finds it is far from ordinary. First the bike helps him save a neighbor's barn from burning. Then it brings him in to conflict with the boys in the Cobra Club, a representative of Goliath Toys, and other forces that not only want John's bike, but want it destroyed. While John learns about the Magic in the bicycle, every reader will be delighted as they join him for this fantastic ride.

Over the course of a year, the ordinary town of Centerville becomes the setting for some extraordinary events. When several children discover that Spirit Flyer bicycles possess strange and magical powers, they are thrust into a conflict with Goliath Industries--with the fate of the town in the balance. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.

    A super series for teaching spiritual truths

    My kids read these books from ages 3rd - 6th grade. They absolutely loved them! Yes, they are scary in parts, but so is sin. The concept of sin as a serpent is described in lurid detail. The effects of sin are plain. The strenght needed to do what is right is shown, as well as the reward. I believe that these books helped us to discuss real life spiritual issues, and that my grown up children are stronger today because of grasping these truths early.

    I really enjoyed this book series as did my 11 year old. It truly addresses the deeper issues of life, the choices we make to follow Christ or go our own way. It touches on how we are drawn away by our own sinful desires and the temptations of the devil and yet Jesus is always there loving us, wooing us back to Himself, desiring to free us from the bondage's of our sin.

    I have three favorite books of all time. The Bible, Till We Have Faces by C.S.Lewis, and John Bibee's The Magic Bicycle. If you've only read the first one you have to read the rest. I promise you that you will find a very real world with a tangible expression of true good and evil. The classic struggle between God and the Devil. John Bibee took the supernatural world I've had to deal with as a kid and put it in a way that I can understand. And yes, the evil is evil in this book, but the good is even better than good. I can't think of a clearer symbolic story than the Magic Bicycle.

    I cannot recommend this book AT ALL! Certainly not for children. Yes Christiansymbolism is woven into the story but the evil is woven even heavier. If you want yourchild to read about a giant serpent in the sky with two big fangs oozing with poison thatchases and tries to eat the boy, and about a man in a truck with the face of someone deadand glowing read eyes with bared teeth snarling like a rabid dog chasing a boy on a bike down the road, a creature that sprays a mist so that as the family comes into the house they smell something dead and then pass out on top of each other followed by the creature taking a glowing red fang shaped hook and attaching it to an invisible chain on around their neck one by one dragging their bodies into a truck, then this is the book for you. But wait theres more. . . glowing telephones that hiss with his family screaming for help because its awful and dark followed by a dark voice threatening for the boy to return home if he ever wants to see his family alive again. He flies into the mouth of the giant serpent in the sky, the mouth of darkness that smelled of death to find his family. He finds them chained together with heavy dark chains around their neck. The creature threatens to kill his family and feed them to the other creatures unless he signs, in blood, his life over to Treason, the future king of the Deeper World.Parts of this book made me want to vomit, and Im 34 years old. How is a young childsupposed to process these horrible descriptions and not have nightmares! It focuses too much on the evil.
