A Children’s Book Giveaway You Don’t Want to Miss – Nugget on the Flight Deck
One of my writing friends, Patricia Newman, who’s a very talented children’s book author and a Co-Regional Advisor for SCBWI in North/Central California, recently had another picture book published…
and she’s giving away a signed copy of it here!
Before I get to the giveaway details, here’s a description of her book:
Calling all future pilots for a crash course in aircraft carrier lingo. Climb aboard the bird with Lt. “Gutts” Guttman and his pal, Nugget, as they catapult off an aircraft carrier they call Mother. Pull a few Gs and test out your flight skills in a practice dogfight or check out the jets in the hangar. The lieutenant keeps the jargon flowing during this tour of duty that will have young readers spooled up to use their new vocabulary. Expertly researched and dynamically illustrated, this patriotic adventure is chock full of information for military buffs and aspiring aviators alike.
*Illustrated by Aaron Zenz.
Here’s what others are saying about it:
“A great introduction to fighter jets and aircraft carriers for young readers.”—Booklist
“Although this book will have special appeal to the children of military families, anyone interested in planes will appreciate the high level of information provided in an attractive, accessible format.”–School Library Journal
“The pictures are action packed. The text is action packed…I loved reading this book.” –Debbie Ashley Nance, readerbuzz blog
And here’s what I say:
I love it!
My son, who is very into gadgets and technical details, says this book is, “Cool.” He liked the authentic military jargon and the fact that there are definitions and pictures explaining it. The book even includes material in the back with facts about aircraft carriers, the different types of jobs on them, and the aviator’s alphabet.
I think this is a really fun picture book, especially for boys.
