Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
From "Who had the first idea for a flying machine?" to "What will new kinds of spaceships look like?" the question and answer format of this Smithsonian-sponsored book introduces kids to the history of flight. Basing many of the examples used on the actual planes held by the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., as well as materials from the museum's excellent archives, this turns into a sprightly overview of the topic. Sarah L. Thomson's narrative is brisk, intelligent, and entertaining, and the graphic design compliments each subject. The question "What was a barnstormer?," for example, is illustrated by the French flight certification photo of African American Bessie Coleman superimposed over a marvelous in-air shot of a stunt jump between 1920s-era planes. With the additions of a timeline, glossary, index, and interview with a NASM historian, parents stand to learn a few interesting facts right along with their children.

Meet the Author

Sarah L. Thomson is the author of three previous novels for young readers. Her most recent book is The Secret of the Rose, a thrilling historical mystery that the Maine Sunday Telegram called "a tour de force of 16th century London life." The Dragon's Son, a retelling of the King Arthur story, was a Junior Library Guild selection and a Bank Street College of Education Best Book of the Year. The Washington Post described The Manny, a comedy about a boy nanny, as having "a plot worthy of Jane Austen." A former editor with a major children's book publisher, she lives in Portland, Maine.
