School Library JournalGr 3-6 Airplanes with unusual shapes or extreme characteristics (largest and smallest, most and least powerful and most beautiful and ugliest) are described and compared to ``average'' planes, with plenty of photographs to clarify the narrative. While some of the planes described are well known, others are unique, some only prototypes that never were marketed. There is no index, but information can be quickly located by skimming the boldface subheadings. Even nonreaders with an interest in the topic will enjoy browsing in order to study the clear color photographs. A good addition for those interested in planes or unusual technology. Susan H.
