Book Reviews: “An engaging story of a spunky girl who follows her dreams…Violet is a terrific role model.”–School Library Journal. “Breen makes good use of both comedy and perspective in action-packed pictures…This will make a great read-aloud; take it on a trip, and youngsters will happily follow along.”–Booklist. “Violet is charming and fearless.”–Children’s Literature. A classic underdog story that’s up-in-the-air, by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist Steve Breen. By the time she’s two years old, Violet Van Winkle can fix nearly any appliance in the house. And by eight she’s building elaborate flying machines from scratch—mind-boggling contraptions such as the Tubbubbler, the Bicycopter, and the Wing-a-ma-jig. The kids at school tease her, but they have no idea what she’s capable of. Maybe she could earn their respect by winning the blue ribbon in the upcoming Air Show. Or maybe something even better will happen—something involving her best-ever invention, a Boy Scout troop in peril, and even the mayor himself! A classic underdog story full of humor and sweetness and retro pizzazz, Violet the Pilot is both endearing and adorable. It’ll fly right into your heart.
