Genre: 

Theme: WWII & elderly When Eric Peters learns that a once famous World War II pilot has a P-51 Mustang stored at the local airstrip, he knows he must see it. So he goes to the nursing home to introduce himself to the now ninety-five-year-old pilot, Leo Foster. Now too old to see his dream of restoring the Mustang to flying shape, Mr. Foster encourages Eric to find someone who can fulfill his wish. But Eric's dad balks at having his son anywhere near danger. Will Eric be able to convince him otherwise? This series of short novels was designed to engage a broad spectrum of struggling readers. No longer will upper-elementary students have to read material junior to their maturity and interests. Characters are age appropriate and come from diverse cultures and backgrounds. Science ficion, sports, paranormal, realistic life, historical fiction, and fantasy are just a few of the many genres. Books are no higher than a 1.5 reading level, with illustrations on every spread that support visual literacy and draw kids into the text. Each book is around 70 pages.
