really liked it
bookshelves: biography-memoir, graphic-novel, kids-nonfiction

Another great book from The Center for Cartoon Studies! The drawings were really great and the panels easy to follow (for an "every once in a while graphic novel reader). I also liked how they only used black and white and blue.

Choosing to focus solely on Earhart's first crossing of the Atlantic worked well. However, I feel like I've been engaging with a lot of media about her recently (like that movie with Hilary Swank? Yeah, I totally just watched that a few months ago), so it is hard for me to parse what I learned in this book from what I already knew about her or saw dramatized somewhere else (ahem, Hilary Swank movie). I may have to think about that some more and go back and give the book another look.

All in all, very engaging. I could see both kids who like graphic novels and kids who like Amelia Earhart or biographies getting into this one.
