BIKERS are ANIMALS 4 - Working and Riding by author/cartoonist Paul Jamiol is the 4th in a series of children's books that bring young readers into a world of motorcycle-riding animals.
In Jamiol's first two books, he introduced his cartoon menagerie on "cool" motorcycles, showing children and parents that those involved in motorcycling are intelligent and caring.
In his third, the characters from BAA1 go on a riding adventure.
Now, Jamiol has created 16 new, young characters who are the sons, daughters, grandkids, nieces, nephews and siblings of his adult characters. These engaging youngsters proudly introduce their adults and explain about their occupations, and then each goes riding with his/her adult, where it's all about bonding and having fun.
In what has become his trademark style of vivid illustrations and attention to detail, Jamiol creates a stunning world for the young reader, again bringing a positive message along for the ride.
Paul Jamiol, an avid motorcyclist, has been cartooning and illustrating for over 40 years and has been recognized for his work locally, nationally and internationally. His cartoons and illustrations have been featured in newspapers, in magazines and on the worldwide web.
He produced his Classic Motorcycle Calendar© for over 12 years and he was commissioned to create a 30-ft mural, Women in Motorcycling, for the opening of the AMA Heritage Museum.
Paul has written and illustrated his Bikers are Animals series of children's book for children who love animals and have an interest in motorcycles. His first two books introduced 25 characters; his 3rd takes them on an adventure. His fourth and latest introduces 16 new younger animals into the mix.
His intention is to spark something in young readers that will get them excited about motorcycles. He also hopes to shake, early on, the adult refrain that "bikers are animals."
