Synopsis

Louis' Dream Plane by Terry Milne

When Louis sees Toby playing with the most fantastic toy plane, Louis can't resist 'borrowing' it for himself. His first pretend flight is amazing as he imagines zooming high above the clouds but Louis' guilt about the stolen plane creeps into his heart until he can't bear to look at it, and he hides it in his bedroom. Louis knows he must put this right so he reunites the plane with Toby and learns that flying is far more fun with two!

Reviews

A gentle tale of honesty, and the delights of sharing a common interest with a friend. || The style in clear large print gives the story pace and clarity. || The illustrations are the principle conveyors of the story, and the colours and tones used are soft and pleasing to look at. This is a story with a moral but told sympathetically from Louis's point of view. || Overtly didactic, but the themes are very worthwhile. A flawed hero can redeem himself, confession is good for the soul, all's well that ends well, a common interest is a strong bond of friendship, and a true friend is more valuable than any object. The story will ring bells with anyone who has been tempted to take and keep something which belongs to someone else.
