Stories from the Cockpit by Andy Campbell

From Grommit, the vulture that falls first from its nest and then in love with a human lady; to Squirrel Coconuts, who ends up by mistake in the hold of a plane and has to find his placy in Hyde Park in London; to a little boy who becomes a castaway on a little deserted island and has to engage a flock of pelicans to carry him back home: these happy, adventurous children stories are unmistakingly written by a pilot!
