Flying Machines: How the Wright Brothers Soared

(4) 4-6 Science Comics series. Illustrated by Molly Brooks. Science, technology, and biography mix in this volume. The narrative covers the Wright Brothers' lives and inventions, their contemporaries and competitors, the science of flight, and aviation technology. The comic-book art and format lends a lighthearted feel, but the graphic flow is occasionally broken as the more technical content is conveyed in text- and diagram-heavy sections. Reading list. Glos.
