Default I have a question - BB book ID

I remember a Brain/ Brawn book where the ship landed on a planet that had "wizards" flying in thrown like chairs. It also had "globe Frogs". Can some one please tell me the title of the book & if possible a discription of the flying chairs.
I was thinking of fixing Mom's power chair to look like one of the flying chairs for Dragoncon.
THANKS

No problem. I tend to rememher as it was the first Ship book I read. The Ship Who Sang was second, dug up in the school library.

Heh, in my case covers start coming off cause I read them so much! Or kept shifting them on overcrowded shelves. I'm afraid to touch Renegades now in case it falls apart!

I found some embrodied clothe at a Good Will store & we are going to cover Mom's power chair with it. I am hoping to make it long enough so that it will look like she is glidding, not rolling. She already has a dress that would be good. I'll try & take pics.

Just wanted to point out that "The Ship Who Won" has a sequal by coauthor Jody Lynn Nye: The Ship Errant.

Mom changed her mind about dressing up this year. She said it would be too hard too to.

I looked & discovered that I had the book. I am now rereading it.

Maw, is your Mother still going to dress up her chair? It sounded interesting to make it into one of the *Ship Who Won's*, Wizard's power chair. Pictues please if you do it.
Also in the *Ship Errant* there are more *Globe Frogs*...and they are indeed delightful characters.

Tresa...don't be afraid to glue your covers on...especially to an old beloved pb...I have had to do it to my first *Dragonsdawn* three times now. The rest of the book is fine, its just the covers on this edition was defective IMO...I have two more of them these days...and they all show signs of the same thing trying to happen.
