Author Bio
Eve Bunting
Born in Ireland, Bunting moved to the United States in 1958 with her husband, Ed, and their three children. She began her career as a writer by taking a writing class at a local junior college. Her first book, THE TWO GIANTS, was published in 1972. In 1976, her book ONE MORE FLIGHT received the Golden Kite Award from the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.

Praise

"There is a reassuring togetherness between father and son and although there isn't an easy, happy ending, it does conclude on a poignant yet believable note of hope. Both illustrator and author focus on giving the child's-eye view of the problem, and their skill makes this a first-rate picture book that deserves a place in all collections." 6/1/1991
