Narrator L.J. Ganser's sardonic tone perfectly matches the snarky humor of this nonfiction history of aviation. Using contemporary language that kids will relate to and that will make them laugh, the audiobook traces the record of humans' attempts to fly and their many crashes--from the ancient Greek myth of Icarus to the Wright brothers' initial trials and errors. Listeners hear the wry cynicism in Ganser's voice as Orville and Wilbur Wright struggle and fail repeatedly in their attempts at controlled flight. Finally, we hear their excited triumph when they succeed. A testament to the perseverance needed to achieve one's dream, this audiobook will inspire young aviation enthusiasts as well as future engineers and inventors.
