Tillie the Terrible Swede: How One Woman, a Sewing Needle, and a Bicycle Changed History by Sue Stauffacher

When Tillie Anderson came to America, all she had was a needle. So she got herself a job in a tailor shop and waited for a dream to find her. One day, a man sped by on a bicycle. She was told bicycles arent for ladies, but from then on, Tillie dreamed of riding-not graceful figure eights, but speedy, scorching, racy riding! And she knew that couldnt be done in a fancy ladys dress. . . . With arduous training and her (shocking!) new clothes, Tillie became the womens bicycle-riding champion of the world. Sue Stauffachers lively text and Sarah McMenemys charming illustrations capture the energy of Americas bicycle craze and tell the story of one woman who wouldnt let societys expectations stop her from achieving her dream.
