Zephyr Takes Flight
text and illustrations by Steve Light.
Candlewick Press, 2012. 40 pp., $16.99.
Zephyr loves everything about airplanes, and when a paper airplane leads her to a secret doorway behind her dresser, she discovers a "wondrous place" filled with flying machines, drawings, and maps. There Zephyr flies a fantastical airship, and meets Rumbus, the only pig of his clan who can't fly. After some exciting aerial adventures, Zephyr returns home in time for a pancake breakfast.
