Lighter than Air: Sophie Blanchard, the First Female Pilot
Take to the skies with the beautifully told tale of Sophie Blanchard - a woman meant for the air - as she discovers the incomparable sensation of flight. Behold the story of Sophie Blanchard, an extraordinary woman who is largely forgotten despite her claim to being the very first female pilot in history. In eighteenth-century France, balloonomania has fiercely gripped the nation ... but all of the pioneering aeronauts are men. The job of shattering that myth falls to a most unlikely figure: a shy girl from a seaside village, entirely devoted to her dream of flight. Sophie is not the first woman to ascend in a balloon, nor the first woman to accompany an aeronaut on a trip, but she will become the first woman to climb to the clouds and steer her own course. The words of Matthew Clark Smith bring Sophie's story to light after so many years, while Matt Tavares' atmospheric art and unique perspectives take her to new heights.

It will . . . sweep readers away. --Kirkus Reviews Henry's lush, digital artwork depicts the splendors of eighteenth-century France . . . a good addition to units on aviation and inventors. --Booklist More than a century before the Wright Brothers invented their plane, Josephand tienne Montgolfier sent a flying machine into the skies--a hot-air balloon with three animals in the basket. Go up, up, and away with them on their first, magical journey! Back in 1782, in Ard che, France, lived Joseph Montgolfier, a dreamer and an inventor who liked to learn about how everything worked. When one day a gust of wind blew his papers into the fireplace, he noticed that something lifted the pieces into the air--and he realized that heat could make things rise. With the help of his brother, tienne, he began to experiment . . . and created a new kind of flying machine: a hot-air balloon! This beautifully illustrated picture book tells the story of how the balloon came to be, King Louis XVI's visit to see it fly, and the three animals--a rooster, a duck, and a sheep--who became its very first passengers.

Who Were The Tuskegee Airmen?
During World War II, black Americans were fighting for their country and for freedom in Europe, yet they had to endure a totally segregated military in the United States, where they weren't considered smart enough to become military pilots. After acquiring government funding for aviation training, civil rights activists were able to kickstart the first African American military flight program in the US at Tuskegee University in Alabama. While this book details thrilling flight missions and the grueling training sessions the Tuskegee Airmen underwent, it also shines a light on the lives of these brave men who helped pave the way for the integration of the US armed forces.

Yellow Submarine
Join the Beatles as they set off on a magical adventure to bring music and love back to Pepperland in this extraordinary collaboration of talent. Once upon a time (or maybe twice), some 80,000 leagues beneath the sea, there lay a colourful land of music and laughter called Pepperland - a place where ergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts' Club Band was always playing your song. That is, until the Blue Meanies burst on the scene and chased all the magical music away. So began the classic 1968 film Yellow Submarine, inspired by the iconic song, which was quickly hailed as a visionary masterpiece - an avant-garde amalgam of Heinz Edelmann's pop art, groundbreaking animation techniques and the Beatles' wonderful music. Now, just in time for the 50th anniversary of the titular song, comes a new paperback edition of Yellow Submarine, showcasing the film's dazzling images and its lighthearted, witty tale in a glorious picture book to be savoured by fans and readers of all ages.
