From Our Editors

"This book . . . recounts the persistence of a Frenchman, Louis Bleriot, to build a flying machine to cross the English Channel. . . . The text is succinct, caption-like in its directness and brevity. . . . The paintings . . . add the necessary texture and tone to this marriage. This is vintage Provensen".--School Library Journal. Caldecott Medal. ALA Notable Children's Book

Editorial Reviews

-Factually accurate, yes-but also a witty pictorial reincarnation of Bleriot+s first experience of an airship. . . . There+s dash, style, and economy here in both text and pictures.+ -Kirkus Reviews

-Fact is turned into magic.+ -The New York Times Book Review

Appropriate for ages: 4 - 8
