Description: Tom dreams of being an adventurer. Everyone tells him he’s crazy, so he decides to prove them wrong by going around the world on his bike!

In volume two, Tom heads north from the tip of South America and makes his way through the Americas. With a long `uphill’ struggle facing him, Tom has the massive Andes and raging Amazon to contend with in South America, deserts and grizzly bears in North America, and a colourful array of characters all along the way. With engaging illustrations, maps, and handwritten journal entries throughout, this book provides an immersive experience for any young adventurer.
