Andrew Prentice, illustrated by Mike Smith

(David Fickling Books – First Names Series)

Amelia Earhart was a pioneering female pilot who became one of the most famous people on the planet.  As a young girl, she was fascinated by speed and the daring exploits of early aviation.  Furthermore, as she became more famous she was also savvy enough to use that fame to inspire others and help to fund her flying adventure plans.
Moreover, this excellent potted biography of Amelia digs into her amazing life with great style and humour.  We follow her exploits as she drove herself on through challenge after challenge, sometimes quite recklessly.
Readers can learn more about other pioneers in Great Adventurers and Lighter Than Air, both in the Bookwagon store.
