Emery has dreamed of flying for a very long time, but being a boy with no friends nearby and no tools or materials, it would be just a dream. But then an old man moves into the house next door and he brings a lot of stuff with him. He has tools and tinkers a lot. One day, Emery goes into his yard and looks around. There, he finds some things he thinks he can use to make a flying machine. When he tries his invention, the old man comes back, and he isn’t mad. His name is Leon, and he wants to be friends and work with Emery to build a flying machine. They work through the summer trying many different ideas, but when fall comes, Leon takes the flying machine, leaves a note, and encourages Emery to keep on working until Leon can come back.
