Captain Arsenio was a curious man who liked, more than anything, to tinker and explore. One day in 1782, he decided that he would put his unusual skills to work in a most ambitious way: he would build a flying machine.|
Despite a hodgepodge of materials (and a total unawareness of the laws of physics), Captain Arsenio aimed to get his feet off the ground and his head in the clouds—temporarily, at least. But would any of his crazy inventions ever achieve flight?
In this hilarious fictional account, Pablo Bernasconi imagines a legend in the making—a retired cheesemaker and scuba diver turned inventor who sets off to fly with the birds, in spite of himself.
