As author, Bo Zaunders, tells us in his informative and intriging introduction..."Throughout history, people have gone to extraordinary lengths pursuing the dream of human flight." They strapped on wings, built elaborate contraptions, and risked life and limb, all to defy gravity, rise above the ground and fly like birds.

I got this book for my 5-year-old who just likes to learn. He is interested in airplanes, so I was intrigued by the title. It was not written for young children, which is partly why I like it. The vocabulary and sentence structure are for much older readers, but he loves listening to me read it to him. The pictures are busy, so they give him something to study.
