About this title


The picture story of the building, launching, missions, and dismantling of the hypothetical airship "Long Island" is accompanied by description of crew and passenger quarters, flight and docking details, and the diverse ways in which dirigibles were used--including military reconnaissance and commercial transportation

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6 Stoff conveys his enthusiastic affection for dirigibles to young readers. Using factual information about several airships of the 1920s and '30s, he takes children through the design and construction of an imaginary ship, the Long Island. The possibility of dirigible use in the future is raised. There is no mention of the Hindenburg tragedy or its relationship to the end of dirigible use. Dark line drawings, reminiscent of David Macaulay's, show the details of construction and function on every page or across a two-page spread. The people in them, however, although they add scale, are awkwardly drawn. The story is simply told, and the text is briefno more than two paragraphs per page. Dallison's shorter When Zeppelins Flew (Time-Life, 1969; o.p.) adds color and sticks to facts, as does Percefull's Balloons, Zeppelins and Dirigibles (Watts, 1983). This handsomely designed book offers a different point of view. Sylvia S. Marantz, Wellington School, Columbus, Ohio
