Fasten your seat-belt and get ready for the adventure of your life!

One day, Sam and Tom pass near a tall white fence. Tom jumps over the fence, but Sam hesitates. He stays speechless by the fence; his heart beats really fast and his tiny little hands are sweaty. He says he doesn’t want to jump. “Chicken!” yells Tom.

On their way home, Sam asks his mother if he’s good at something.  His mother tells him he knows how to make big chewing gum balloons.  “That doesn’t count!” Sam says. He wants to be good at hard activities such as… flying a plane.

His wishes come true in a extremely realistic dream…

Sam must get over his insecurities and fly a real plane in order to save the lives of the people on board.
Is Sam able to gain enough confidence and motivation to land the plane safely or is he going to crash?

About Tammy Brown Elkeles

I was born in Nigeria, but my family moved to Israel when I was eight years old. I live in Tel Aviv with my husband Miki, a photographer and documentary director, and our two boys. Writing children’s books has been my passion ever since I became a mother. Children are an endless source of inspiration and joy, and they can teach us adults so much about life. I believe that our children are our true spiritual guides. Being a staunch optimist, I believe that we have the power to influence reality and shape our own lives, and that is the message I wish to convey through my writing.In fact, I remember writing my first children’s stories when I was a little girl. But life led me down a different path. I graduated with a BA in chemistry and nutritional biochemistry and later studied advertising as well as interior design. It was only in my thirties that I got to realize my childhood dream, studying playwriting and screenwriting and making writing my main focus.In recent years I have been involved in filmmaking, serving as assistant director for the documentary Cinema Egypt, assistant editor for a documentary on a rap group, and writer of a documentary for National Geographic. My first play, Dust, was performed in 2009, and I have completed a script for a children’s feature film.I currently have seven children’s books available on Kindle, and there are more to come. My book The Birds’ Bakery will soon appear in print nationwide. I’m also working on a comic books series for teenagers, D.J. Dirty Brown, to be published on Kindle.Your thoughts and comments are important to me. Please write to
