Book Description
"This book . . . recounts the persistence of a Frenchman, Louis, 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. Caldecott Medal.
