Overview

First the big planes got their turn, and they've made the most of it: The World Record Paper Airplane Book and Kids' Paper Airplane Book together have over a million copies in print, and they're still soaring. But now they've got a new little sibling: Pocket flyers Paper Airplane Book, a flyaway impulse book if ever there was one. Developed by the same team of Ken Blackburn and Jeff Lammers, Pocket Flyers Paper Airplane Book features 12 Lilliputian-size models, for a total of 74 planes. The models are about one-quarter the size of the planes in the previous books and are designed with original full-color graphics. There are easy folding instructions for each, as well as special tips on how to fly smaller aircraft. The portable package and its planes are perfect for small spaces: the office, the den, the back of the minivan, drinking establishments. The obsessed among us will try to establish a mini plane world record. The rest of us will be content to just fly these flashy Piper cubs of paper from one side of the room to the other. And with the Microjet, Angelfish, Flying Sneaker, Gargoyle, and Dragonfly, there promises to be a lot of contentment.

    Awesome, vibrant, captivating airplanes

    This is the most awesome book I have ever seen. I purchased this for my 10 year old son and he has completed all of the airplanes and wants another of the same book. The first part of the book contains clear directions on how to make the planes. The back of the book contains the most beautiful, brightly colored graphics on the paper used to make the planes. When the planes are made they are bright and in the shape of whatever the name of the plane is. For example the dragonfly looks like a dragonfly and when the plane is finished using the paper provided it has a brightly colored dragonfly that completely covers the plane. It is hard to really explain how exciting these planes are. This book will provide hours of entertainment. I guess I should also tell you that the planes fly really well. the helicopters twirl really well too. The only down side, if you could call it that, is that you end up with a lot of planes flying around the house, especially on rainy, snowy or cold days, and they look so great that even if they don't get put away they sort of decorate the room. We have had other airplane books but none that came up to this one.
