Although Alison dreams she has wings, she can't see them in the morning. Her brother reminds her that girls don't have wings; airplanes do, but never girls. Her mom chimes in to tell her about birds having wings. Her dad even claims that angels have wings. Alison decides she'll be the first girl with wings. Girl wings. And she is. Bauer's very easy chapter book is illustrated with Roth's black-and-white pencil drawings and has lots of white space between its short sentences and large size typeface. New readers will fly through this optimistic story. (Ages 4-7)
