Overview

Orville and Wilbur Wright are only bicycle mechanics in Dayton, Ohio, but they have a dream.

This interactive series will enthrall young and reluctant readers (Ages 8-12) by making them part of the story, inviting them to become the main character. Each book uses humorous illustrations to depict the sometimes dark and horrific side of life during important eras in history.

Orville and Wilbur Wright are only bicycle mechanics in Dayton, Ohio, but they have a dream. They plan to fly-not in a balloon or a glider, but in an airplane made of wood and cloth, powered by its own engine. Most people don't believe this is possible; do you?
