This may be no use to anybody.

I remember reading a book when I was younger but I can't remember the name of it.

Here is what I remember :

A boy
He had a bike called Gulliver or Oliver (i think)
He lived in a house (sorry!)
He had chips one night for tea

I know this is probably useless, I just thought I'd give it a go.

I keep having a dream about this boy and his bike and it's starting to freak me out a bit. I remember reading it in my school library one day

Any other info?
Was it a picture book?
Or a novel?
What year roughly etc?

It was a novel - possibly aimed at children.

Early 1900s was the setting I'm sure.

Sorry there's not much to go on

The Freedom Machine by Joan Lingard?

I googled A Bike Called Gulliver and that's what came back OP, so I'm not certain, but the cover seems like you might recognise it if you have a look on Amazon.

There's no description that I can see though.

Thank you!

Yes it was the freedom machine.

I read this years ago when I was at school. I have no idea why I'm dreaming about it.

Thanks for your help
