Hello, Bima here.  I'm Todd's pet lizard named after the Sultan of Bima who discovered the world's largest lizard, a Komodo dragon.  I'm no 365 pounds, in fact I'm barely an ounce, but I have a major problem on my claws.  I need to find a way to help Todd ride his bike before the big school derby.  The only problem is he doesn't know how and being eight years old already doesn't help.  He never learned in the city and now it's a big deal where we live.  And that bully Bobby Menlo, (rhymes with uh-oh) is giving him a hard time, calling him a baby.  I know I can help, but how?  Read LUCKY LIZARD to find out.  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face Committee)
