Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
This book depicts all manner of aircraft. Readers will soar with little single-engine planes that use grassy fields as their runways, with huge jumbo jets lumbering on paved paths, and also with those sleek and mysterious spy planes zooming in the stratosphere. No matter if the plane is made of wood, cloth, wire or sheet metal reflecting in the sun-all are beautiful to behold. 1995 (orig.
Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Enrich plane plans with poetic musings by Diane Siebert, whose Plane Song tells of "planes of every shape and size/that taxi out/takeoff/and/rise/ above a world of/ tundras/ trees/ fields and farmlands; cities/ seas...." All evocatively captured in Vincent Nasta's colorful paintings.
