Joanie Stone’s debut illustrated picture book, Me and the Sky, (out September 10th!) has already received excellent reviews from Kirkus and Booklist. This biography on Beverly Bass, the first female co-pilot of American Airlines and the inspiration for the character in the Broadway musical Come From Away, is a story of determination and passion. Kirkus says Stone’s “retro, cartoonish illustrations…evoke spirited enthusiasm” and her art is inspiring and well done because it “embraces people of color as well as of various ages”. And with Booklist calling her drawings “bright and optimistic” this book is sure to elevate anyone’s spirit!
