"The Golliwog's Air-Ship"
by Florence Upton

"The Golliwog's Air-Ship" is the seventh of Florence Upton's Golliwogg books.

The story line follows Golliwogg his friends the wooden Penny Dolls Sarah Jane, Peg, Meg and Midget as they build an airship, decide what clothes they should wear to fly in it and then take a rather calamitous journey.

Excitement and adventure looms when:

A gust of wind unloosed the cord,
And ere our travelers knew,
Her small balloon had blown away,
Alas, how fast it flew.

Upton noted in her diary of 23rd March 1902 that bad reviews towards "The Golliwog's Air-Ship" wondered "that anything so hideous should please and even fascinate children'". Her response to this, though she agrees that he is ugly, is that children "see his beautiful personality".
