The Girl with her Head in the Clouds : The Amazing Life of Dolly Shepherd Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Anneli Bray

Paperback / softback


When sixteen-year-old Dolly Shepherd is offered the chance to take to the sky in a hot-air balloon, there's no way she's going to turn it down.

Even though the pilot actually plans for her to jump out of the balloon and plummet back to earth using just a flimsy parachute. For Dolly, it's the start of a sensational career.

But the life of an aeronaut is as dangerous as it is daring, and there will be many narrow escapes along the way ... Pioneering aviatrix Dolly Shepherd comes alive in this thrilling reimagining of her death-defying exploits from bestselling author Karen McCombie.
