Lola Flies Alone
illustrated by Bill Pechet
"You look like you're ready for anything," said Lola's mother, when Lola descended the stairs.
"Indeed I am," said Lola.
Awarding-winning author Bill Richardson and illustrator Bill Pechet team up again with Lola Flies Alone, a delightful story about a young airline passenger who has even more imagination than she has style—and she has plenty of that. Lola’s first unaccompanied flight is beset by problems, but whether it be mermaids in a wading pool blocking the runway or a ballerina doing arabesques in the aisle, Lola has the solution. A delightful tale about being “good and kind and generous and brave”, it’s a reminder that brave and stylish girls can always save the day.
The Bills' previous collaboration Hare B&B was co-winner of two Next Generation Indie Book Awards (Juvenile Fiction Early Reader and Gift categories), named a finalist for the Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Canadian Picture Book Award, included in the Globe & Mail's Top 100 Books of 2021, and named a top recommended read for the 2022 TD Summer Reading Campaign.
