Synopsis: The Wright boys' interest in flying began with a toy given to them when they were small children. As young men, they first opened a printing shop and then a bicycle shop, all the while experimenting with how to design a flying machine. Finally they achieved their incredible goal-man's first powered flight. In this accessible picture book with a "House that Jack Built" approach, young readers are gradually introduced to all the steps that led up to the Wright brother's remarkable historic accomplishment.

From School Library Journal: Kindergarten-Grade 2-This rather slight picture book follows a "House That Jack Built" pattern and quickly becomes tiresome. One cannot sustain interest with the awkward refrain, "which was conquered in flight in 1903." Edwards does employ a clever device to help tell the Wrights' story-little mice scampering across the pages with asides to one another that actually contain significant facts and humorous opinions. However, it may be difficult for young readers to distinguish between the two. This approach is reminiscent of Robert Quackenbush's Take Me Out to the Airfield! (Parents' Magazine, 1976; o.p.), which has a more enlightened and accessible text. Cole's drawings seem to mature as the book progresses, but his human figures appear somewhat underdeveloped and expressionless. Endpapers with a streaming pink ribbon of facts construct an interesting and inventive time line, one of the better features of the book.
