Rob Kortus presents When Dog Pals Fly Across America

In this colorful picture book, three intelligent dog pals embark on a flight in their personal helicopter across America with stopovers in every state visiting cool and sometimes unique places! Sophie, Sulley, and Wallace skillfully impart education, while conveying the love of flight and making new and interesting friends along their journey. The crew discusses American geography thus encouraging readers to delve deeper into what each state has to offer. The crew's narrative and art are mind and eye-catching especially for children. An educational, self-discovery filled journey suitable for all ages. This is a first book in a series of books where the dog crew will fly to every country in the world! Next flight takes the crew across Japan!
