Product Description

When a father who dreams of flying goes off to war and doesn’t return, his son decides to make his dream come true. Grahame Baker-Smith’s moving picture book story, illustrated with stunning collage artwork, shows how – with love, hope and ambition – you can reach seemingly impossible goals.

Winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal 2011.

“Utterly captivating… This is a picture book to treasure and will be enjoyed by children and adults alike.” Lovereading4kids.co.uk

“A clever picture book with a dream-like quality. It is beautifully designed with a wealth of detail, conveying dark emotions, storms of war and weather, and a powerful sense of loss and bereavement.” Kate Greenaway Medal website
