ALIS THE AVIATOR

Special Story Time Guest Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail

Join us for a special storytime with guest storyteller Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail, whose meticulously researched, uniquely crafted, one-of-a-kind book that will delight aviation fans big and little. Come along on an aviation journey with Alis, a spunky female guide who will take you through an ABC of planes featuring gorgeous cut-paper art.

An A to Z of planes past and present, this book has stunning cut-paper art and a cute-as-a-button guide named Alis. Named for Dr. Alis Kennedy, likely one of the first Indigenous women to obtain a commercial pilot licence in Canada, Alis will take you on an aviation tour from the Avro Arrow to the Zeppelin and everything in between. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail grew up in a family of plane enthusiasts in Ottawa, Ontario—but she’s not actually a pilot herself (much to her son’s dismay!). Instead, she’s a writer who has researched and written aviation and reconciliation stories in Edmonton, the North and now Houston, Texas, where she lives with her family and fur babies. She is the author of For the Love of Flying and Polar Winds. This is her first book for children.
