Amelia Who Could Fly

An amazing illustrated book that tells the story of little Amelia Earhart, who would laterbecome the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, in 1932. A versatilecharacter, Amelia was and is a fine example of how it can be possible to reconcile therealization of a dream which was unconventional for her time with a femininity whichwas never overshadowed: a style icon who appeared on «Vogue», a «Cosmopolitan»contributor, Amelia also created her own line of clothing.The narrative of Mara Dal Corso relates with freshness and immediacy little Amelia’sgreat desire to fly, and the special, soft illustrations by Daniela Volpari, perfectly matchedwith the style of the decade, add grace and joy to the adventures of Amelia, with abeautiful rendering of the natural environment in which she spent her childhood.

A nonconformist from an early age, as a child, Amelia liked to wear pants (quite unusual for a girl at that time!) and wanted her hair cut short.

That day, I felt like I was in the clouds.I spread my wings… It didn’t last long.But that was when I knew that flying was what I was meant to do.
