Beschreibung

A Newbery Honor Book: Spending the summer in a dull French village is not what Johnny had in mind . . . but soon he's hot on the trail of a Nazi spy! When twelve-and-a-half-year-old Johnny Littlehorn's dad returns from the front lines and announces they're spending the summer in France, Johnny is appalled. He doesn't understand why they're going to France when they could stay home at their Wyoming ranch instead. But that's before he discovers an old German pistol hidden in a loaf of bread. When Johnny arrives, he finds the village of Saint-Chamant anything but boring. With the help of his new friends Suzanne and Charles, Johnny follows a winding trail that leads to a fugitive spy and a stolen fortune. Before long, he's learning French, helping his oncle Paul build a real airplane, and unraveling an evil Nazi plot!



Autorentext

Cyrus Fisher was the pen name of Darwin L. Teilhet (1904-1964), the grandson of a French immigrant who came to America from Saint-Chamant, in the Corrèze region of France, after the Great French Wine Blight of 1860. Born in Wyanet, Illinois, Teilhet made several trips to his family's ancestral land as a boy, and as a teenager he even worked as a juggler in a French circus. Teilhet was born one year after the Wright brothers' first successful flight. In those early decades of air travel, the marvel of human flight captivated the world and became the obsession of many. Having learned to fly while he was still in high school, Teilhet retuned to Saint-Chamant in 1924 to build a huge glider. The day the twenty-one-year-old successfully flew the glider was declared a legal holiday by the town's mayor. Teilhet is also the author of many detective novels for adults, the majority of which he wrote in conjunction with his wife, Hildegarde. He passed away in Palo Alto, California.
