Cromwell Dixon's Sky-Cycle by John Abbott Nez
Nez, John Abbott, Cromwell Dixon’s Sky-Cycle. G.P. Putnam’s Sons. 2009. PICTURE BOOK. Cromwell had dreams of creating a bicycle that could fly through the air. He wants to be successful in creating it and make it to the St. Louis Carnival after the great flying race. However, he has some problem that come up along the way. Will Cromwell fulfill his dream? Based off a true story about Cromwell Dixon and the amazing Sky-Cycle. Young readers will enjoy learning about a boy that was their age who defied the odds and soared(literally). Would recommend this for early elementary. EL(1-3). ADVISABLE.
