Turbo, star of the children’s book Turbo the Flying Dog, returns for the third book in his series, “Turbo Flies Through History,” scheduled for release Nov. 19, 2016.
Children 4-8 will follow along as Turbo and his best friend Olive travel through the history of aviation.
The series is inspired by the real-life rescue dogs of authors Kelly Kennedy and Victoria Neuville, and focuses on rescue and aviation themes.
In the new book, young readers will join Turbo and Olive as they teach each other about the popular planes of the past as well as lesser known moments in the history of flight.
“Many readers may recognize the Wright Brothers, or the space shuttle, but do they know which animals took the first hot air balloon flight?” Neuville, a licensed pilot, asks. “Aviation isn’t just about flying the plane, it’s about the exciting past that brought us to where we are today.”
The dogs and authors will celebrate the launch of Turbo Flies Through History at AOPA’s National Aviation Center in Frederick, Maryland, on Nov. 19 at the Paws and Planes Holiday Event. The free event runs from noon to 3 pm and families are invited to meet Turbo, Olive, and special guest Santa Claus while participating in aviation-related activities.
