Description

Soar along on a clever girl's flight of fancy in a whimsical ode to free spirits, inventiveness ...and flying pigs. Zephyr is a girl who loves aeroplanes. She draws pictures of them, makes them out of paper, builds them out of rubbish - and hopes one day to fly one of her own. But when Grandma, Daddy and Mum are too busy to play aeroplanes with her, Zephyr's excess enthusiasm gets her sent to her room - where she discovers a secret door leading to the most wonderful place she's ever seen...Lovers of flying machines and gadgets - along with adventurers of all kinds - will be buoyed by this light-hearted tale of a little girl who finds her wings. Zephyr is unlike any other character in picture books: she's a free spirit who loves aeroplanes and adventure. She's a great role model for girls who love fantasy, friendship and things that go. Steve Light's intricately detailed illustrations, particularly the images of flying machines, are a delight. An offbeat story of friendship: Zephyr, who loves flying, uses her wits to help her new friend Rhumbus, the flightless flying pig. As a child, when Steve Light was asked what he wanted to be when he grew up, he would say "Santa Claus". Now that he's grown up, he feels drawing, making things and telling stories is the next best thing. He is the author-illustrator of many books for children, including "The Christmas Giant". He lives in New York City with his wife and cat.show more
