What is included with this book?


"[C]hildren are going to be charmed ... only such a good fantasy writer as Lawson could write about his adventures so plausibly ... And the author's pictures get better and better as the story progresses." — Kirkus Reviews
"[Lawson's books] will live for generations." — The Horn Book
Peter Pepperell abruptly stopped growing at the age of 7, after which he started getting smaller. But while his body became tinier, his mind got bigger and so did his sense of adventure. When he learns of an overseas madman who's threatening the world with a compact but powerfully destructive weapon, the 4-inch-high boy climbs on the back of a friendly seagull and heads for Europe to disarm the evil scientist — and to do a little sightseeing along the way.
Author Robert Lawson was awarded both the Newbery and Caldecott medals for his writing and illustrating, and his images for The Fabulous Flight add mightily to the story's whimsical delights. Long out of circulation, this book is back in print and ready to delight a new generation of young readers.

Author Biography

Robert Lawson (1892–1957) had illustrated more than 30 children's books — including the ever-popular Mr. Popper's Penguins — before writing his first book, Ben and Me, the story of an ingenious mouse who inspires many of Benjamin Franklin's inventions. Lawson was awarded both the Newbery and Caldecott medals for his writing and illustrating.
