About the book:
An A to Z of planes past and present, this book has stunning cut-paper art and a cute-as-a-button guide named Alis. Named for Dr. Alis B. Kennedy, likely one of the first Indigenous women to obtain a commercial pilot licence with land and sea ratings in Canada, Alis will take you on an aviation tour from the Avro Arrow to the Zeppelin and everything in between. Meticulously researched and uniquely crafted, this is a one-of-a-kind book that will delight aviation fans big and little.
“If you have a child who loves planes, this is absolutely a book to add to your bookshelf. Alis the Aviator is a perfect combination of aviation vocabulary and facts, the ABC’s, and unique collage illustration.” —Canadian Picture Book Blog
