Synopsis

Inspired by a real mission, Vanessa Harbour's middle grade novel Flight is a story of courage, friendship, and dancing horses.

Everyone deserves to be free and feel safe, even horses.

Austria 1945. SS officers visit the Spanish Riding School stables, determined to find the Jewish boy, Jakob, they believe to be hidden there. Luckily for the boy, they are called away—but not before one shoots and kills his favorite horse. It's clear to Jakob and his guardian that they are no longer safe there. Traveling with all the horses will be risky, but the alternative—staying—is even more dangerous.

On the way, they're joined by Kizzy, a Roma girl. Together, the trio travels to the safety they hope to find on the other side of the mountains. Along the way are life-threatening obstacles…including an injury that could prove to be deadly.

A Macmillan Audio production from Feiwel & Friends
