"It's an adventure, uplifting, and . . . peril! I love peril!"—Narrator Kirby Heyborne

We Own The Sky

by Rodman Philbrick, read by Kirby Heyborne
Scholastic Audiobooks, Ages 8+
AudioFile Earphones Award

Philbrick’s latest historical fiction, set in 1920s Maine, is brought to life by the amazing Kirby Heyborne. Davy and his sister, Jo, orphaned by their mother's death, are rescued for the summer by cousin Ruthie Reynard, a famous aviatrix who gives them jobs and a home in her flying circus. As delivered by Heyborne, 12-year-old Davy’s voice is nervous as he worries about his and his sister’s future and Jo’s dream of performing in the circus. The flying circus’s announcer bellows enthusiastically, building suspense for the amazing feats performed high in the sky.
