John, the Airport Kid
is a charming and somewhat autobiographical "magical adventure" told by John Jopling,
who was an airport kid himself. While a fantasy of sorts, in which
airplanes talk in the hangar at night, it also contains some
valuable life lessons and would make good reading for any young
teenager. It tells of a boy who is forced by circumstance to take
responsibility for himself, and who, through his love of aviation,
finds a home, a job, friends and a family, learning a lot about love
and caring along the way. Delightfully illustrated, it falls into a
category of children's books often produced by major publishers.
