Wings: A Pop-Up Book of Things That Fly

by Nick Bantock

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
Bantock has designed a dazzling pop-up book that provides simple explanations about wings. From pop-up dragonflies to bats, birds, and supersonic jets, Bantock provides a basic introduction to the structure of wings. Insets of "Amazing Flying Facts" highlight specific points of interest.

Gr 2-4-- A quick survey of flying things, from insects to the Concorde, with short columns of text, supplemented by boxes of ``Amazing Flying Facts'' and small but clever color paintings, some on fold-out pages. The pop-up effects are uneven: the slotted circle purporting to show a bat in flight requires a gifted imagination (and will quickly be destroyed), but the tiger moth is clad in showy colors, and the dragonfly, which flaps its wings in alternate pairs, is brilliantly designed. Fragile, but good for display or demonstration. --John Peters, New York Public Library
