Summary, etc.:
Miles was a difficult dog until he got his own motor car. But now he is growing older, and new challenges are arising. He doesn't chase balls like he used to. His legs hurt whenever he takes walks. And sometimes he doesn't hear when Norman calls him. So when Norman learns that Mr. Huddy's small airplane is in need of a pilot, Miles takes to the skies. In a deeply moving, ultimately uplifting picture book, the star of Motor Miles returns in a story that will resonate with readers who know what it's like to say goodbye to someone they love. Based on an idea by incomparable picture-book creator John Burningham, the text for Air Miles was completed by his longtime friend Bill Salaman and lovingly illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, John Burningham's wife.
