Going on a flight is a strange and exciting experience. From the moment you arrive at the airport - where does your bag go after you hand it over at the check-in? What is that strange squashed-up lorry doing? And when you take off: are those clunks normal? Should the wing be doing that? Where is the food cooked? What happens when you flush the toilet? And - why don't pilots have beards? You'll find all the answers in this book, and it will also show you the exciting things to look out for while you are in an airport. Every time you spot one of them you can tick it off and earn points. Welcome aboard!
Here is a book which would be a helpful read when children travel by plane, and also a worthy addition to the school library shelf on transport - this thoughtfully designed book covers extremely well the things that children ask about airports and air travel - Books for Keeps 4 Star Review.
