Mrs Armitage On Wheels


So far this new year, year 1 have been looking at Mrs Armitage On Wheels by Quentin Blake. It’s about a very resourceful lady whom sets off for a quiet cycle with her faithful dog, Breakspear. However, she just can’t help thinking of ways to improve her bicycle. Before very long she has added three very loud horns, a bucket of water to wash her hands, a complete tool kit. And by the time she has also added a seat for Breakspear, two umbrellas, a cassette player and a mouth-organ, Mrs Armitage is riding a very eye-catching contraption. But it is when she finally adds the mast and sail, that Mrs Armitage really runs into trouble. . .
