Product description

One dark night on the island of Great Saltee, 14-year-old Conor is framed for a terrible crime he didn’t commit. Thrown into prison by the evil Hugo Bonvilain, trapped in a seaswept dungeon, Conor must escape and clear his name. Conor knows there is only one way out. It’s an impossible task. But Conor is determined to do it. He’ll have to fly. A quicksilver tale of pioneering aerial adventure from the mega-selling author of Artemis Fowl.

“Colfer animates Airman with a raconteur’s instinct for both grand historical sweep and the tiny quirks that make us care about characters.” Guardian
