Meet Willie: A Dreamer on Two Wheels
Let’s dive into the world of When Willie Got His Wheels – a tale that’s as endearing as it is inspiring. This book, penned by RJ Davila, takes us into the life of Willie, a 7-year-old boy with dreams bigger than his small Midwestern town. Willie’s not your average second grader; he’s a dreamer, a planner, and boy, does he have a passion for motorcycles!
In his quiet neighborhood, Willie’s imagination roars louder than any engine. He’s captivated by Bill, the biker who zips through the streets, and this fascination sets the stage for a story full of aspiration and youthful zest.

Bill the Biker, oh what a sight! He’s the cool, mysterious figure who fuels Willie’s fiery interest in motorcycles. The way Bill rides, with a breeze of freedom and a dash of mystery, makes Willie’s heart race. It’s not just about the bike; it’s about the allure of the open road, the sense of adventure, and that unmistakable biker coolness.
As a mom, I get it. Our kids look up to these figures, imagining themselves in those grown-up shoes (or should I say, biker boots?). Willie’s admiration for Bill is a poignant reminder of childhood’s innocent aspirations.
