Description

Awarding-winning author Bill Richardson and illustrator Bill Pechet team up again with Lola Flies Alone, a delightful story about a young airline passenger who has even more imagination than she has style – and she has plenty of that. Lola's first unaccompanied flight is beset by problems; whether it be mermaids in a wading pool blocking the runway or a ballerina doing plies in the aisle, Lola has the solution for every setback. A delightful tale about being "good and kind and generous and brave", Lola Flies Alone is a reminder that brave and stylish girls can always save the day.
