The Fabulous Flight

by Robert Lawson. When Peter Peabody Pepperell III was seven years old he began to grow smaller instead of bigger, and by the time he was thirteen he could ride on rabbits and fly on the backs of sea gulls. This talent came in very handy, since Peter’s father was employed in the State Department, and Peter was sent on a Very Important mission. An absorbing story, with just the right combination of modernism and magic.
