Alex has a very close relationship with his Grandpa Joe. They’re best friends. Alex even works at his grandpa’s neighborhood bike shop, Speedy Wheels. One day something terrible happens. An accidental fire starts in the bike shop, and Alex blames himself. What’s Alex to do?
Alex Bigsby is a little boy with big ideas. But has he bitten off more than he can chew? Forgetting to unplug his grandfather’s old coffeepot at Grandpa Joe’s Bike Shop teaches Alex and his friends a valuable lesson in fire safety, and their eagerness to earn quick cash without carefully doing their work educates them on the importance of follow-through. One of the pillars of character is responsibility, and this is a great book to teach children how to take responsibility for one’s actions.
