Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Pat Trattles
Amelia Earhart was never afraid to try new things. She built her own roller coaster in the backyard when she was only seven years old. During the winter she loved to speed down the hills on her sled—lying on her belly like the boys. When she saw her first air show in 1920, she was hooked and soon began taking flying lessons. During her aviation career she set many world records and became a well-known and well-respected aviator. She disappeared while attempting a flight around the world in 1937. Part of Capstone Press' "Graphic Library" series, Amelia Earhart's story is told here in graphic novel format. With a carefully controlled vocabulary, simple sentence structure, and straight forward presentation of information, it is ideally suited for the reluctant or below grade level reader. A table of contents, glossary, bibliography, an index, and additional information sections providing key facts about Amelia Earhart's fascinating life, round out the presentation. An Accelerated Reader quiz is available.
