NIGHT FLIGHT: AMELIA EARHART CROSSES THE ATLANTIC (Simon & Shuster, 2011) by Robert Burleigh. Illustrated by Wendell Minor


author Robert Burleigh has captured Amelia Earhart’s first solo flight
across the Atlantic in 1932. She was only the second person to do this –
and the first woman. Rich in detail, feeling and incident this is
nonfiction with edge and action, a you-are-there experience made more
dramatic and real by Wendell Minor’s vivid paintings.
