...the pictures are more fanciful as illustrator Mariadiamantes endows the aviator with a mane of incandescent orange hair and sends her flying westward (in contradiction of the text and history) on her final around-the-world flight. Stirring encouragement for all “little people” with “big dreams.”
-Kirkus
