Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 3-6
Leading the pack of paper engineers, as usual, in the sheer number of flaps, pop-ups, and moving parts that he packs into each spread, Crowther follows up the equally bulging Trains (Candlewick, 2006) with a history of flight, from the ancient Chinese invention of the kite to the X-43A scramjet that NASA still has under development. Along with dozens of small, simplified but clean-lined portraits of renowned aircraft, many of which "fly" along die-cut slots, he includes a pop-up modern air terminal, a large two-sided globe on which famous firsts are traced, and a particularly well-designed 747 cockpit with moving control levers. Most of the abbreviated text is presented in one- or two-sentence captions, but enough is hidden beneath flaps or placed on slide-out panels to reward lingering over each spread. A treat for hands-on readers and, as long as the spreads are opened slowly, sturdy enough to survive repeated use.
