Another Picture Book Review by Jean Matthew Hall
Violet tbe Pilot was written and illustrated by Steve Breen. Dial Books for Young Readers published it in 2008.
Violet is different from the other kids at school. She doesn’t have friends. She doesn’t spend time on the playground. Violet is fascinated with the junk in her father’s junkyard, and spends her time dreaming, planning and scrapping to build her own flying machine.
Violet’s persistence, determination and imagination lead to her success, of course.
And her success at flying comes with an unexpected bonus—
You’ll have to read Violet the Pilot for yourself to find out what that is.
First and second graders will love this book, its illustrations and determined little main character.
