about

In this heartwarming historical fiction story, after Wilbur saves her life, the permanently injured seagull Simone helps the Wright Brothers learn to fly. You get the expert gulls-eye view of humans achieving what most consider impossible. Step by step, Simone guides Will and Orv from steering a kite through kiting a glider, manned glider flight, and finally, powered flight. The action is real history, and the gull-to-man dialogue is both aeronautically insightful and emotionally sensitive. As Simone says, After all, these guys were only human. You go, gull!
