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

Bartholomew Biddle's life has always been pretty ordinary, but when a huge wind blows past his window one night, he feels the call of adventure -- and he can't resist the urge to grab his bedsheet and catch a ride. Soon he's 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 doesn't blow. Stuck, Bart is forced to face the fact that his flying days might be over. Will he ever get home again?

Often overlooked on our chapter book shelves, this epic poem, paired with gorgeous illustrations, is fun to read out loud with early elementary students. Share it during April (National Poetry Month) or anytime you need a bit of whimsical and magical adventure.

Why, this silly old wind was nothing to fear with a bedsheet to sail and an instinct to steer.
