I was looking for ferret themed stories and came across a series of books by one of my favorite authors, Richard Bach.
If the name sounds familiar, that is because he wrote Jonathan Livingston Seagull. I was delighted to find that he had written about ferrets. In doing my research, I found that eight ferrets own him himself.
Air Ferrets Aloft is the second book in the series and the reason I’ve chosen it for this review is that November is Aviation Month.
Air Ferrets Aloft is about two ferrets that fly two different types of planes and routes. Stormy is a cargo plane pilot who doesn’t let any kind of weather stop her. Captain Strobe flies a passenger jet and accepts what the sky has for him.
Both are dedicated to flying and when a flight grounding storm puts them in each other’s world it is up to the angel ferrets to get them together.
Even though this is supposed to be a children’s book it is a fun read and Richard’s experience with ferrets shows through brightly.
Richard Bach is also a pilot himself and this last August was in a plane crash that he is still recovering from.
Enlightened Ferret sends Well wishes to him and his family.
Have a Chittering Good Day,
