Winner of the Caldecott Medal, this stunningly illustrated book depicts Louis Bleriot's historic first cross-Channel flight.

"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
