By the time she's two years old, Violet Van Winkle can fix nearly any appliance in the house. And by eight she's building an elaborate flying machines from scratch, mind-boggling contraptions such as the Tubbubbler, the Bicycopter, and the Wing-a-ma-jig. The kids at school tease her, but they have no idea what she's capable of. Maybe she could earn their respect by winning the blue ribbon in the upcoming Air Show. Or maybe something even better will happen, something involving her bestever invention, a Boy Scout troop in peril, and even the mayor himself!

A classic underdog story full of humor and sweetness and retro pizzazz, Violet the Pilot is both endearing and adorable. It'll fly right into your heart.

Author/illustrator Steve Breen is a Pulitzer Prize–winning editorialcartoonist and the creator of the comic strip Grand Avenue. Stick, hispicture-book debut, is rambunctious, silly, and couldn’t be more endearing. Steve Breen lives in San Diego, California.
