Lindbergh: The Tale of a Flying Mouse

It takes a mouse to inspire history. Ever resourceful, imaginative and persistent, a little Lindbergh-232x300mouse decides to escape mouse traps and cat predators by flying like bats. He just has to figure out how to build a set of wings. When he finally succeeds, he makes a transatlantic flight that inspires a little boy named Charles Lindbergh.

Fun and beautiful to read, Lindbergh also has several mechanical sketches for future engineers.

The final pages give “a short history of aviation” by author/illustrator Torben Kuhlmann.
