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

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