Girl on a Motorcycle

Girl on a Motorcycle will empower young readers and see the world for the beautiful it is.” – Momma Braga


One day, a girl gets on her motorcycle and rides away. She wants to wander the world. To go…Elsewhere.

This is the true story of the first woman to ride a motorcycle around the world alone. Each place has something to teach her. Each place is beautiful. And despite many flat ties and falls, she learns to always get back up and keep riding.


Girl on a Motorcycle is the empowering story every little girl should read. Inspired by a true story, we are taken on a world journey exploring the different cultures and people. It is amazing to read how a woman travelled the world on her own with the view that the world was beautiful.

Such an empowering and impactful story for young readers. You learn so much of Anne-France Dautheville as the author includes a beautiful bio and photos of her. The author also includes a note of what inspired her to write this story.

“What I wish for all young citizens of the world, for every human being on this incredible planet, is the ability and freedom to travel, to wander, and to lust for elsewhere, to meet people, to experience through their own eyes and hearts that the world is beautiful and good.” – Amy Novesky
