Your book about Homer Helicopter is exciting because it describes how thrilling it is to control a little plane.
Young people need to learn that there is so much more to flying than getting from here to there.
I will be honored to have my name used with 'Helicopter Homer.'

Local author Julie Buscher has written a delightful children's book that will please children and adults alike.
Children ages 5 to 10 will delight in this tale of Homer the Helicopter as he emerges from the factory--shiny and eager for adventure. His mother the wise golden-colored Elsa realizes he is brave from the start and eager to "be on his own."
Homer finds himself flying tourists in the Grand Canyon a place where he can practice his best flying. It is in the canyon where he meets Baldazar the eagle who becomes his friend. They spend hours flying challenging maneuvers and Homer's penchant for taking risks brings him trouble more than once. Homer eventually becomes a medevac copter using his skills to help Nurse Jenny save lives in and near the canyon. Homer receives awards for his heroics and skill.
After many adventures he decides a change is in order and convinces Baldazar to join him in flying north to Alaska which will surely be next in the adventures of Homer and his faithful friend. Colorful illustrations by C. M. Rogers bring a warm persona to Homer and his friends.
Elsa enrolls Homer in the Whirly Bird Aviation School where he meets Hank and learns to fly safely and with accuracy.Homer the Helicopter will be an enjoyable read-aloud book and has been recommended as an aid in helping young children expand their vocabulary and their understanding of the English language. I also would recommend it as an excellent example of descriptive language for young writers. Classroom teachers will find it a good resource for "lifting sentences" to show examples of entertaining and descriptive writing.
Children will enjoy having Homer on their bookshelves and parents will appreciate its contribution to the child's language development.
