Product Details


Winner, 2019 Outstanding Work of Creative Non-Fiction
Children’s Literature Council of Southern California

“There’s excitement and bravery in each thread of the story, so beautifully told, against the historical backdrop of WWII and introduces us to the heroic stories of the real pilots who’ve inspired the story.”
—Association of Illustrators

“Deng’s graphics vary from striking compositions reminiscent of WWII-era posters to dramatic views of soaring planes under enemy fire.”
Publishers Weekly

“A fascinating read in terms of untold history – especially the heroic women of colour, who were flying life-threatening missions as well as combating racism on the ground.”
—Book Trust

“The book provides important context for kids to understand the lengths that women had to go to in order to gain acceptance in the military.”
American Scientist

“Risking their lives countless times in feats of incredible bravery, the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs) of the Second World War are honored in this beautifully illustrated and inherently fascinating story based on actual events and real people. Skyward is unreservedly recommended for family, school, and community library collections.”
