Beautifully illustrated Pilot Jackie adventure stories for children
The Pilot Jackie stories for children are being written by Candy Adkins (Jackie's daughter) and illustrated by Lara Adkins (Jackie's granddaughter). There are 8 titles in the Up Up Up and Away series with Granny putting the kids to bed and asking for a story which is then told in charming rhyme. The children never realising that Granny is talking about herself. The reader can see at the end a photo of Jackie so readers can see it is a true story to inspire girls to fly. We hope you enjoy a selection of pages below from the first three books and would love your feedback.
