Great ready to fly into summer with a new reading adventure, Flying Circus Through Thick and Thin, by Leona Cobham.

About the Book

A group of anthropomorphized airplanes encounter extreme weather while training at a mountain base. The Spitfire and the biplane, Woody, discover a suspicious mining operation. Tom, the F-14, accidentally gives their radio frequency to the antagonists at the mine. A snowstorm causes more problems. Tom makes amends by rescuing an F-117 Nighthawk.

The second story is a comic tale of mistaken identity. Spif feels responsible for the smooth running of a historical commemoration, but his plans are hampered by a series of hilarious errors involving statues of Wellington and Napoleon.

In the final story, when the friends are invited to an air show in the height of summer they become impatient with a Chinook who is garnering attention. They take to the sky, and the Tomcat lights his afterburners. When a fire starts, he assumes it was his fault. He overcomes his shame to help with the firefight. Spif must put his pride aside and accept assistance from the popular Chinook. Each aircraft contributes to the effort with its own unique skill set. When they save some scouts who have been camping, it turns out it was the scouts who started the fire. They realize through making mistakes, we learn.

About the Author

Leona Cobham was immersed in the world of aviation from a young age; her grandfather, Sir Alan Cobham, made many first-time flights as well as pioneering the invention of air-to-air refueling. Leona absorbed this love of flying and travel. While working in a forest recuperation project in Brazil, Leona volunteered to teach in a shanty town. Here, a lifelong interest in understanding different learning styles began. On return to the UK, she began to write children’s fiction and worked part-time as a classroom reading assistant. Believing happy children learn best, Leona infuses her writing with humor, adventure, and a big feel-good factor. Her endearing characters overcome personal as well as technical challenges to succeed.

Our Review

This book is part of a series that captivates young readers, especially airplane and flying enthusiasts. It is filled with travel and tales of friends who travel together and tackle new adventures along the way. The book is easy enough for young readers, but does have some verbiage and content that a more experienced reader will understand; however, it will also provide a great learning experience for the reader and parent or teacher as they navigate it together.

The book is filled with wonderful illustrations by Timothy O’Brien. Another wonderful element of this book is that, while it is filled with acronyms and airplane technical terms, it has a detailed glossary that explains each of these. As well, there is are several pages that help the reader visualize different parts and movements of an airplane.

The book is geared towards young readers, ages 7+. It is a moderate read at 144 pages, but is definitely a great book that any young reader will not want to put down.
