From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-8 In straightforward but unstilted prose, Brown covers all of the important facts about Amelia Earhart plus many interesting anecdotes. She discusses Earhart's father's alcoholism and her unusual marriage to publisher George Putnam, who encouraged her life in aviation. A romantic atmosphere is created by realistic ink wash and soft pencil drawings, while an eight-page center inset of clear black-and-white photographs helps bring Earhart to life. However, the format may turn away older readers for whom this book is more appropriate, while younger readers may be overwhelmed by the language and the many details of her flights and problems. Of the more recent books about her, both Blau's Whatever Happened to Amelia Earhart? (Raintree, 1977) and Sabin's Amelia Earhart, Adventure in the Sky (Troll, 1983) are easier to read, have larger print and cover many of the same incidents. Blau emphasizes the flights and the disappearance, but the quality of illustrations and photographs is poor. More of Sabin's book is concerned with Earhart's childhood, and the black-and-white sketches are attractive. Sylvia Marantz, Wellington School, Columbus, Ohio
