Book by Victoria Griffith

It’s a race! Alberto and Louis are vying to be the first to fly a winged plane in Paris. Of course, Alberto has an edge: he has been using his dirigible for everyday travel. As you race to read the story, full of little-known facts, you will be stopped by the beautiful and evocative illustrations.  And, while not exactly a gay book, the illustrations include elegant same-sex couples holding hands, part of the very gay feel of this volume. This so-called children’s book has everything you want in the genre. It is the perfect antidote to the deep winter blahs. Abrams (abramsbooks.com). —Review: Angel Curtis
