Overview

This book is a delightful yet gentle approach to introducing the young reader to the reality of how WWII started and to the role of the young British pilot in charge of a Spitfire airplane. Full of amazing historical facts, the story includes how pots and pans were melted down to make more planes and how women made airplane parts by working in factories and even drove tanks. Beautifully illustrated with easy-to-read text, this book is not only engaging, entertaining, and educating but it also serves as a great learning tool to WWII and British/American history. It is a must have for budding pilots everywhere.

Reviews

"Author Faye Beerling and illustrator Gareth Bowler return to make learning about history great fun for youngsters, somehow capturing all the bravery, camaraderie and heroism - as well as the scary bits - of the Battle of Britain in one very enjoyable picture book! If you like 'Horrible Histories', you'll love this"  —Paul Hayton, Bookshop Manager, Waterstones
