(From the publisher):
Mr Hoopdriver is an expert in his field – a perfect gentleman with exemplary manners and more than a little flair behind the drapers’ counter. Yet Mr Hoopdriver is growing tired of measuring out yards of gingham and selling endless reels of threads various. He yearns for new discoveries and new adventures, and above all a change of scenery. Determined to leave the humdrum behind him, he mounts his bicycle and heads off for places new.
