Amelia Earhart and Eleanor Roosevelt were two of the most admired women of all time, and they were friends. Illuminated in picture book form is the true story of a night when they made history together. One evening in 1933, Amelia and Eleanor did the unprecedented: They stole away from a White House dinner for an adventure aboard an Eastern Air Transport plane–while still dressed in their evening gowns. This book celebrates the spirit of two women whose passion for life gave them the courage to defy convention in the name of fulfillment, conviction, and fun.

Illustrated by Brian Selznick
