Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Mike Wimmer's dramatic paintings, the backdrop for Mr. Burleigh's terse text, make history come alive. You are there! Alongside Lindbergh on that misty May morning, lifting up, up, and across the Atlantic to land some thirty-two-plus hours later on French soil to the cheers of thousands. Lindbergh's exhaustion, as depicted on the last page, is palpable.
Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
In 1927, Charles Lindbergh made the first non-stop fight from New York to Paris. Burleigh poetically describes that momentous event. 33 1/2 hours from start to finish and we are there flying with Lindy in "Space and time and deep, deep darkness... " While many of Wimmer's paintings fill the pages with the vastness of sea and sky, there is an early scene showing only the feet and legs of Lindbergh, a perspective that plants us firmly on the ground, making the airborne scenes even more dramatic. Winner of the Orbis Pictus Award for Nonfiction and Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year.
