Where to buy it


From the New York Times bestselling artist of Just Try One Bite and I Don’t Want to Be a Frog comes a picture book series about childhood firsts, featuring two melons with hilariously—and helpfully—opposite worldviews. Hop on as they learn how to ride a bike.

Cantaloupe has a new bike! HoneyDo wants to see him do cool tricks. But Cantaloupe can’t do tricks. He can’t even ride. And he’s not sure he can learn. No problem—HoneyDo will show him. Sort of? You’ve never seen bike-riding like this!

Meet Cantaloupe and HoneyDo. Cantaloupe brings the caution and HoneyDo the confidence. Together, they’re learning what they can’t do, at least not at first, and what they totally can—with a little practice, a little care, and two smart melons. From riding a bike to baking a cake and more, with friends like this, new things are can-do.
