Jean Dreams of Flying


This paper back is written by Dreydon Sobanja, with illustrations and design by Terry Fitzgibbon.  It is one of ‘The Inspirational Kiwis’ book series.

SKU: 1005 Category:


Jean was just a normal New Zealand girl who dreamed that she was a bird that could fly high, high up in the sky and far, far away.  Most people thought Jean’s daydreams were silly.  But one day she met someone who showed her the most fantastical machine, and Jean’s dreams took flight.

Follow the inspiring journey of Jean Batten… from a normal kiwi girl all the way through to becoming the first woman to fly all the way from England to Australia and back again.
