This wonderful book tells the story of the aerial experiment association (A.E.A) founded by Alexander Graham Bell, and his wife, Mabel Bell.

Through a lyrical poem, the author takes the readers along with a friendly mouse and teaches them about experiments leading to the creation of the aircraft that achieved the first powered flight in Canada, The Silver Dart.

Author Linda Brand, a full time interpretation officer at the Canadian Aviation Museum, has crafted this story so that young readers can share in celebrating the hundredth anniversary of the event that launched a century of achievements in Canadian aviation.
