Turbo the Flying Dog takes off on new adventureTurbo the Flying Dog takes off on new adventure

Turbo the Flying Dog displays "Turbo Learns to Fly," the latest installment of the children's book series.

The next installment of the children’s book series chronicling the adventures of Turbo the Flying Dog has landed on bookshelves.

In Turbo Learns to Fly, aimed at children ages 4 to 8, young readers join Turbo on his first flight lesson. His flight instructor is his best friend, Olive. Readers learn aviation terminology such as “preflight” and “ailerons.”

Written by Victoria Zajko and Kelly Kennedy, the second installment in the series again features whimsical illustrations by Michelle Zajko.

The real-life Turbo belongs to Zajko, and Olive belongs to Kennedy. Turbo is quite at home in the backseat of the Glasair flown by Zajko and her husband, Bob. The dog has logged 89 hours and has flown to the Bahamas and Canada.

Turbo Learns to Fly is available at the website and on Amazon. Also available is the first book in the series, Turbo the Flying Dog.
