Reviewed by Corin, Edmund's Friend

A quick, fun and very well illustrated read with excellent values.


Adam wants to fly and King Aren decides to help. He gives Adam an instruction book and all the parts to make a flying machine, but the Professor says that the book is old-fashioned and that Adam should just build it however he wants.


Very good. Ordinary virtues such as caution and sharing are strongly upheld.

Spiritual Content

Very good. The book shows that you should always follow the Bible. Psalm 119:105 (NIV) is quoted.


Adam falls a long way twice but is not hurt either time.

Drug and Alcohol Content


Sexual Content


Crude or Profane Language or Content



With its up-beat pace and great morality and spiritual content, Adam Raccoon and the Flying Machine is a book I highly recommend. The characters are very realistic and relate-able to readers both young and old. This book's illustrations are also very well done.
