Isabella is a little girl whose parents struggle to make the ends meet. Her biggest dream is to have a pink bicycle but her parents can’t afford it. One day she meets Ferret Frankie who makes her dream come true. Of course nobody believes in Ferret Frankie, so when he comes to rescue Isabelle’s father one day, he is a big surprise.

A cute story about believing and helping each other, and never losing hope. It was Sophie’s favourite story and she heard me reading very carefully. There were some

Ellie’s review:

Isabella lives with her mum and dad. She really wants a pink bicycle but her parents can’t afford one. One day, Isabella is granted a wish by a Ferret godfather, called Frankie. I laughed out loud when the ferret godfather introduced himself because it was quite funny. This book was short but I enjoyed it, especially as it had such a happy ending. I would recommend it to young children aged 7-9.

This was my favourite out of the 3 books. A lovely story about friendship and helping others. Isabella has always wanted a pink bicycle, but her family could not afford it. One day Isabella meets a ferret called Frankie who, in exchange for friendship, grants Issabella's wish of a new bicycle. But when an accident occurs Isabella asks for Frankie's help even when nobody believes her story about a talking Ferret!

Other than making my

Isabella's Pink Bicycle: - an illustrated, interactive, magical bedtime story chapter book adventure for Kids (Once upon a NOW 2)
Story of Isabella and how she grows up in a poor section and has always dreamed of having a pink bike.
While helping with chores she meets up with a ferret godfather-not a fairy godmother and he wants to help her get what she wants.
Some sketches in the book and QR codes to click on for pictures. One day the mine caves in and her father is trapped. She comes up with an

I received this book free through Goodreads first reads. The story had a great plot, but doesn't quite draw the reader's interest. The story is short enough to read in one or two sittings, but it took several days to read with my daughter because she want excited enough about finding out what happens next.

A very modern version of a poor girl having her dreams granted by a magical being. I enjoyed the technology components.
The reason for not giving thus 5 stars was the story line was not consistent. For example, it says Isabella had to make dinner since her mom worked yet her mom is making dinner.

Good story

This was a cute story that is great for children. It teaches the lesson of never giving up hope. Sure to be a favorite book of elementary school children

Kindle Unlimited, so thankfully will never have to see again. Unbelievable even for a 'fairy tale' type story, not for children because not childlike just childish, in horrible bullying basically okay, guy gets rich and whole town profits, storyline doesn't have to make sense even in the limited framework it had for this type of story, being tech savvy grandkids and myself both found the links pretty much useless with either option, does NOT make book 'interactive' either, look term up in ...more
