Abstract:

The Wright Brothers's terrier, Angus, wants to fly. In this humorous, inventive book, readers hear the story of the Wright brothers' first flight from the perspective of their (fictional) dog. Wilbur and Orville Wright's pet, Angus, is one of the smallest pooches in Dayton, Ohio. He may be a little dog, but Angus is about to play a big role in history. He'll be by the sides of his owners as they work to develop the first plane. As a matter of fact, Angus is the one who gave them the idea to try to fly! Meanwhile, Angus has an escapade of his own along with his buddies, Nibbles (a mouse) and the other neighborhood dogs.
