In 1948 West Berlin, Mercedes and her mother rely on the noisy American planes that form a sky bridge into the city, bringing vital food and supplies. But the planes deliver more than flour, clothing, and coal. Every day, one special plane wiggles its wings, and its pilot drops small candy-filled parachutes for the children. How can Mercedes get the Chocolate Pilot to drop some candy just for her?

    " This book was about a pilot who dropped chocolate during the war and a little girl who wrote him a letter. It was cool because the pilot is from Utah. "

    " A beautifully written and illustrated childrens' book. "The Berlin Airlift of 1948-1949 is still one of the greatest humanitarian missions the world has ever known. Like a great sky bridge, airplanes flew 24 hours a day, three minutes apart, to feed 2.2 million people for 15 desperate months." My dear friend Ingrid lent me the book who was there and lived through the war and the after effects of it. I highly recommend this book. "
