Peter Pepperell abruptly stopped growing at the age of 7, after which he started getting smaller. But while his body became tinier, his mind got bigger and so did his sense of adventure.

Author Robert Lawson was awarded both the Newbery and Caldecott medals for his writing and illustrating, and his images for The Fabulous Flight add mightily to the story's whimsical delights. Long out of circulation, this book is back in print and ready to delight a new generation of young readers.
