Product Details

Praise

“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

“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
