Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The growing popularity of air shows will make the subject of this book a winner with reluctant readers. The easy-to-read text discusses the outgrowth of stunt flying from World War I flight maneuvers. It also outlines some of the key differences—for safety and for drama—between standard airplanes and stunt planes. Each section begins with a brief outline that will help readers find key facts and points of interest. Color photographs of stunt planes in action, including the Blue Angels flight team, will add interest. Although the issue of safety is addressed, the coverage may not be sufficient for adults who are concerned about the danger of flying and watching stunt planes. Readers eager to learn more will find suggestions for further reading as well as a FactHound link to online sources. A glossary and index are also appended. Part of the "Wild Rides!" series on extreme motorsports. 2004, Capstone Press, Ages 8 to 12.
