Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Williams, an actor and certified flight instructor, debuts with an oversize picture book certain to capture the imaginations of young airplane aficionados. Headed to an air show, Ellie and Gill excitedly climb aboard a small plane piloted by their father. As he and his copilot run through the preflight checklist ("Radios on?" "Check!".... "Check avionics?" "Got 'em") and follow instructions from the tower, readers witness a takeoff firsthand. Neubecker's (Sophie Peterman Tells the Truth!) buoyant cartoons capture the thrill of the flight (from many perspectives). At the busy air show, a foldout spread displays an arresting array of vintage and contemporary planes, each labeled with its name and year (the scene wouldn't be out of place in a Where's Waldo book, but all eyes would be on the planes). In the most exhilarating scenario, Ellie is treated to a ride in an open-cockpit stunt plane; as the plane (and text) makes an oval loop in the center of the spread, Ellie is seen in closeup on the periphery, her expressions ranging from apprehensive to gleeful. Creative typography, facts, and sound effects add to the fun of this exuberant excursion. Ages 3–7. (June)
School Library Journal
Gr 3—Less a story than an excuse to expound on different types of planes and helicopters, this paean to flying machines will resonate with young transportation lovers. Ellie and her brother travel to an air show in their dad's plane, where Ellie gets a ride in a stunt plane. The facts about helicopters, jet engines, and the Blue Angels are clumsily loaded into the text, but young airplane aficionados are unlikely to notice among the bold, busy illustrations and foldout pages. The oversize picture-book format and Neubecker's bright, carefully detailed cartoon illustrations combine to provide the expansive, exciting feel of an air show, and the artist makes use of multiple perspectives to show planes from every angle.—Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MD
Kirkus Reviews
Airplane-crazy kids will find new friends in Ellie, who longs to fly stunt planes, and Gill, her know-it-all brother, as they take an exciting flight to the air show in their father's plane. Filled with the important chatter between pilots and air-traffic controllers about take-off and landing, the book treats young enthusiasts to a backseat tour of a flight, from last-minute fueling to landing. Once the children arrive at the air show, Gill's book knowledge tells the story of the planes. Showing off his encyclopedic mastery of the subject, Gill spews facts about horsepower, speed and even the distance between the wingtips of the Blue Angel jets in flight (a soda-can length) in a not-always-natural delivery. When Ellie's dream comes true, though, readers experience the joy of flying through her eyes. Neubecker's signature ink-and-boldly colored illustrations show the same enthusiasm for flying that the children do and are detailed enough to pore over, especially the gatefold showing all the planes at the show. Though thin on plot, this first book from actor and flight instructor Williams is a perfect book for kids who love planes and flying. (Picture book. 5-8)
