Summary of The Glorious Flight Summary of The Glorious Flight Reviews for The Glorious Flight An Excerpt from The Glorious Flight

"This book...recounts the persistence of a Frenchman, Louis Bleriot, to build a flying machine to cross the English Channel....  The text is succinct, caption-like in its directness and brevity....The paintings...add the necessary testure and tone to this marriage.  This is vintage Provensen" – School Library Journal

 

-Factually accurate, yes-but also a witty pictorial reincarnation of Bleriot+s first experience of an airship. . . . There+s dash, style, and economy here in both text and pictures.+ -Kirkus Reviews

-Fact is turned into magic.+ -The New York Times Book Review
