Wings of Glory flies into bookshops!
Wings of Glory is out today! Written by TV and radio presenter Dermot O’Leary and illustrated by our very own Claire Powell, this is a wartime tale of courage and adventure with a feathery twist!
It’s 1940, and the world is at war. Linus, a swift, has always dreamed of flying with the Royal Bird Force and making a name for himself as a squadron leader. So when he and his sister, Ava, have the opportunity to volunteer, he jumps at the chance.
But it’s a dangerous journey, and Ava goes missing before they manage to reach the airfield for training. Now, Linus has two missions: help the war effort and find his sister.
Linus will face bomber planes, arrogant falcons, and a spy who’s determined to take him down…
He is brave and fast and kind – but can Linus prove that helping win the war is more about the size of your heart than the size of your wings?
