Synopsis

I Wish I Were a Pilot by Stella Blackstone

olden carriages, airplanes, submarines - there are many ways to get from here to there! Some have engines, others have gears and others again are powered by people. Using playful rhyming text and brightly coloured artwork, this book introduces young travellers to the many forms of transport and travel. The endnotes include fun facts on each type of transport in the book.

'Children's imaginations will be stirred by the possibilities ... what child hasn't dreamed of soaring in a spaceship, or pretended to gallop with a broomstick?' --Parents Choice Foundation'

About the Author

On good days, Stella Blackstone lives east of the sun and west of the moon. On less good days, she lives at the bottom of a well. She finds ideas in all of these places and turns them into songs, poems and rhymes. She has read and written poetry for as long as she can remember, and her favourite books include Louis Untermeyer’s A Child’s Treasury of Poetry, which was a constant companion throughout her childhood, Paolo Coelho’s The Alchemist, everything by T.S. Eliot, and William Buck’s translation of The Ramayana. She lives in southwest England, and enjoys walking and working in her garden as well as doing nothing whenever she has the chance.
