Lenox is an imaginative kid who loves airplanes and dreams of the day he will get to board one. When his parents announce that the family is taking a trip overseas, he learns that his great grandad was a Tuskegee Airman who earned pilot wings.
He cannot wait to board his first flight and get a pair of his own, until the excitement causes him to lose his passport in the airport. He and his little sister Teagan set out on an adventure to find it before their flight takes off.
In Lenox Takes Flight, the author shares the world of travel through the eyes of a curious, intelligent young man who is on the cusp of a grand, life-altering journey.
