Review:

"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

"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 texture and tone to this marriage. This is vintage Provensen"--School Library Journal
