The pioneering Wright brothers dared to dream of being the first men in the world to fly… but would they ever see their dreams take flight?
The golden age of aviation is brought vividly to life in this story of determination, ingenuity and courage from Adam Hancher.
“It’s inspiringly written, to encourage children never to give up on dreams; the account is told in narrative form, making it an easy and enjoyable read. Colourful drawings throughout set the scene to perfection. The book also includes a page about the Wright Brothers’ life and legacy.”

‘Hancher’s illustrations, warm and energetic, capture the determination of the brothers and the spirit of the time.’
