Pedal Pusher

Henry Holt & Co., Releases February 18, 2025

Illustrated by Lisa Anchin

This picture book biography tells the story of Annie Cohen Kopchovsky – also known as Annie Londonderry – the first woman to ride her bicycle around the world.

Annie undertook this amazing adventure because two men said a woman would never be up to the challenge. She left her husband and young children at home and SHE DID IT – breaking barriers and spinning stories along the way!

This book’s back matter includes newspaper headlines about the trip and information about the ways in which bicycles gave women new freedom.
