Munsch tells a wonderfully whimsical story of a five-year-old girl whose curiosity coaxes her into accidentally flying off with an airplane. (Kitchener-Waterloo Record)
Angela's personality and spirit are captured perfectly in Martchenko's depiction of her. (Canadian Materials) --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.
