Overview

Fortuna Dalliance is practical. Rational. Clever. But when she finds herself at the doorstep of an adventure, she discovers something that has been inside her all along: the courage to step through. The old Baldwin sisters are in trouble, and they've asked Fortuna to help them out of a fix. The sisters have accidentally turned a swallow into a boy, and he refuses to be turned back! But if Martin doesn't return to his original form within five days, he'll remain a boy forever . . . and the Baldwin sisters will have a lot to answer for. Fortuna's not sure she believes in magic, and once she's gotten to know Martin, she's not sure she wants him to be changed back. As Fortuna figures out what it truly means to be a friend, she must decide whose side she's on-before it's too late! Judy Hoffman's debut, with delightful illustrations by Stephanie Graegin, weaves an enchanting tale of loyalty, freedom, and feathers.

Reviews

Like the crones in Dahl's The Witches, the Baldwin sisters supply sinister humor, while conflicted heroine Fortuna must decide whether to let her friend fly free. Black-and-white spot art adds charm to this contemporary, debut fantasy. Silly witches, transformed birds and a plucky heroine equal 'real, live adventure.' Kirkus Reviews


Author Information

Judy Hoffman has always been an avid reader and creator of tales. She especially loves stories combining magic and real life. Inspiration for The Art of Flying came from the view outside her many-windowed writing room. She and her husband run a reclaimed antique lumber business outside of Chicago, where they live with two teenage sons and two giant dogs. This is her first book. Visit Judy online at judyahoffman.com. Stephanie Graegin studied fine arts at the Maryland Institute College of Art, and went on to attend Pratt Institute, where she received a Master of Fine Arts in Printmaking. She is the illustrator of Don't Feed the Boy, Water in the Park, and several other children's books. She lives in Brooklyn. Visit her at graegin.com.
