Bartholomew Biddle and the Very Big Wind

author: Gary Ross
illustrator: Matthew Myers

Bartholomew Biddleís life has always been pretty ordinary, but when a huge wind blows past his window one night, he feels the call of adventure ó and he canít resist the urge to grab his bedsheet and catch a ride. Soon heís soaring far above his little town, heading wherever the wind takes him! After spending time on an island full of pleasure-seeking pirates and at a prep school that boasts a hundred shades of gray, Bart finds himself in a mysterious cove where the wind doesnít blow. Stuck, Bart is forced to face the fact that his flying days might be over. Will he ever get home again?

A soaring bedsheet carries a young boy on three incredible adventures in this compelling debut by acclaimed film director Gary Ross.
