"If that man can fly, so can I!
On a lively street in the charming city of Paris, a young woman named Aida looked up at the sky and marveled at the sight of an airship. How she would like to fly across the sky like that! The inventor of the device, Alberto, invited her to take a ride in her airship, but she Aida did not want to travel as a passenger. She wanted to be the pilot.
Aida was barely a teenager, and no woman or young man had ever flown before. But that didn't stop her. All she needed was a few classes and a chance.
With eloquent words and expressive illustrations, Margarita Engle and Sara Palacios tell us the inspiring story of Aída de Acosta, the first woman to fly in a motorized aircraft."
