Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Young boys will revel in the daring exploits and moan with sympathy at the stories of school and social life. The book is about life, decisions, and trust. While the crazy stunts that are pulled are not for the timid, the message is something that parents would want their child to hear.” Children’s Literature
“Plot threads of bullying, a bit of romance, peer pressure, a pigout eating contest and good-old-fashioned ingenuity keep the story moving. Implausibility is sky-high, but the boys’ determination will keep readers going…Part Hardy Boys, part Gary Paulsen, part Skateboard Magazine for Kids.” Kirkus Reviews
“Ramón de Ocampo gives an energetic and compelling performance in this warm and spirited children’s story…De Ocampo’s enthusiasm, clear enunciation, and skillful pacing dramatize the exhilaration of a common goal as Brian and his friends leave behind the pressures of school by escaping into the air in a homemade airplane.” AudioFile
