One of the best books I have ever read. No matter how many times I read it. My grandson, aged 9, has read it too. There are so many levels and meanings, and its a great story.

I can totally agree with Wilco.  yes

It is entertaining, kind of philosophical and pedagogic at the same time. Especially if you read it a few times.

IMHO and within some aspects, it could be compared to 'Le Petit Prince' by Saint-Exupéry.

Meaning by that, the same kind of 'discovery journey'.

So, if you just discovered there was a book as well, Jonathan would very certainly "kick" you, BBC.  wink

Oddly, Jonathon Seagull is the name of a Don Stothers plan for a flying boat. I have the plan!

It's quite amazing how people seem to identify with JLS and how long lasting the effect has been. I took the liberty of borrowing one of the songs to go on the vid of one of my slopers smiley

This is all a mystery to me, but I seem to recall Jonathon was something to do with John Denver.

This is the RC model used in the filming back in '73 - presumably the full size gulls didn't take direction well.

Cool. I like JLS, and have just completed reading a collection of Richard Bach's other writings. He evokes the feeling of flight better than any other author, I feel.

Richard Bach's book "Biplane" is also a good read.
