Back in the 1930's, pioneering English aviator, Amy Johnson became the first female pilot to fly solo from England to Australia. She then went on to break numerous flying records and was greeted by a ticker-tape reception during her tour of New York. This delightful book teaches the young reader to believe in themselves and to never give up by sharing in Amy's courageous and often dangerous journeys as she flew across the skies. Historically accurate, engaging, and entertaining this book is sure to delight and is a must have for all budding pilots everywhere.

Reviews

"I think its fantastic that at last there will be a book for this age group on Amy's famous flight to Australia. What a wonderful book it is with the lovely illustrations that made me smile and I'm sure children will thoroughly enjoy. I particularly love the message the book gives with pushing boundaries and belief in yourself."  —Michelle Beadle, Hull History Centre, UK

"The inspirational life of one of the great unsung heroes of the twentieth century, Amy Johnson, is brought to life for younger readers through the trademark wit and charm of Faye Beerling, backed up by the fantastic illustrations of Gareth Bowler."  —Paul Hayton, Bookshop Manager, Waterstones
