Follow ten-year-old Joe Joe Rawlings as he faces contemporary challenges with guidance gleaned from a rich cast of historical characters in this series of books written around Christian themes for African American children, ages 6-10. "Joe Joe in the City" deals in a realistic but age-appropriate manner with issues and challenges facing African American children and their families in an urban environment. This third volume, I'll Fly My Own Plane, introduces Joe Joe and his young readers to the Tuskegee Airmen. Instead of taking advantage of an opportunity to make "quick money" in an unethical (and possibly illegal) way and thus to be able to afford an expensive remote control plane, Joe Joe keeps his job at the local corner store and is content to fly the plane his dad has made for him.
