Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In the second large-format book from the Everything Goes transportation series, Henry asks airplane-related questions and his parents provide the answers as they walk through an airport terminal, pass through security, find their gate, board the plane, and begin their flight. The colorful, cartoon-style illustrations offer young children plenty to observe and talk about, from the many aircraft in the skies above the building to the intriguing, amusing, and sometimes absurd details inside the bustling airport. Interspersing bite-size portions of information with diverting comments from other travelers, the conversational speech-balloon text provides a great mix of facts and fun. Consider multiple copies. Preschool-Grade 2. --Carolyn Phelan

Review

“For young fans of things with wings, another oversized visual riot from the creator of Everything Goes: On Land (2011) . . . Required reading for both plane-iacs and any first-time flier.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“The cheery cartoon illustrations are chock-full of details, making each invitingly crowded spread a destination worth slowing down for. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this survey of flight.” (The Horn Book)

“The colorful, cartoon-style illustrations offer young children plenty to observe and talk about. . . . Consider multiple copies.” (Booklist)

More About the Author

Brian Biggs was born in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1968, the son of a mystical one-armed sailor with secret powers and a Portuguese train bandit. He began drawing pictures immediately. At age eleven, he moved to Pasadena, Texas where he learned to talk to cows and watch football.
He went to college for one year in Denton, Texas, for two years in New York City, and for one other year in Paris, France. He graduated with a degree in Graphic Design in 1990, because he didn't realize at the time that drawing pictures was something he could do for a "job."
In 1993, Brian moved to San Francisco where after a few years as a graphic designer, he realized that he could draw pictures as a "job" and began doing so with gusto. He drew comic books and illustrations for magazines and he drew posters and made animations and eventually began drawing children's books. He moved to Philadelphia in 1999 and now lives in a big old house there with his two kids, his fiancée, his dog, and two cats that no one really claims but who seem to run things. Brian works out of a quiet old garage where he draws pictures, builds secret experimental jet-packs, and likes to make music in his spare time.

This is the second book in the EVERYTHING GOES series by Brian Biggs, and it's my favorite so far. The pages are packed with information about the history of flying machines, and big spreads explain the different parts of the planes, helicopters and balloons that kids will find fascinating. There are several jokes and running gags throughout the book that will make kids return again and again.

Finding the mother's lost babies was a fun seek and find for my friend's kid who is 2 and a little young to sit still for the explanations of the aircraft, but still ogled at all the pictures. He's obsessed with ANYTHING that goes, so I'm sure he'll get more from this as he gets older as well.

Format: Hardcover
This book follows a boy and his family to the airport. Along the way they see lots of aspects of air flight. The boy ask lots of questions about them and the father answers them. Perfect tool for teaching about the different types of planes that are used around the world. The book is filled with great illustrations. There is so much to look at! It would be best to read it one on one with a child so that they can enjoy all the pictures and learn from them.

My daughter actually chose this book when we were at the library. I didn't think it would be anything special, but I was proven to be wrong! My daughter and I loved reading this book and playing little games based off the illustrations. I had to order a copy to keep in her collection and got the rest of the Everything Goes series, because they are so unique and engaging for my little preschooler.

Format: Hardcover
SUMMARY: This is both a fact book about flying machines and a story of a young boy who is going on a trip with his parents by airplane. He asks questions along the way about different types of air machines. There are two page spreads of the different types such as helicopters, hot air balloons, vintage planes, jet planes, and work planes.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations are colorful and funny. But they are extremely over busy. It is like reading a Where's Waldo book. You must spend much time looking at every little thing on the page to find the facts and the funny stuff. The word bubbles get completely forgot lost within the pictures.

THE GOOD: There are some very interesting facts about the many different flying machines starting with the first Wright Brothers Flyer. There is also a lot of slapstick humor throughout the book including a man who takes off most of his clothes to go through the metal detector instead of just his shoes. Older elementary students will have loads of fun reading this book over and over, especially if they are excited about flying machines.

AGE RECOMMENDATION: Grades 2-4

Oh this is fabulous! Bright and vibrant and full of facts and trivia this book is fun. This oversized book has lots of vocabulary. Reading through early readers can learn through questions asked by the boy going on an airplane ride. This is an awesome picture dictionary. It will provide an excellent gift to a kid before a trip or even someone just interested to learn about all sorts of machines that fly. There is so much to look at including five missing babies on each page. Then a double fold out page with airplanes all over the air space. Readers can find numbers and letters and other things to spy.

Format: Hardcover
Busy detailed pages, some in graphic novel format, feature plenty of sidebar info and speech bubbles. There's lots and lots of colorful detail in this appealing oversized format. Think of Richard Scarry's Richard Scarry Busy Town insane labeling of everything crossed with the humorous hidden details of Martin Handford's Where's Waldo? series plus a decided transportation bent.

This is sure to be endlessly pored over by young airplane fans.

Cute book, great detail and information on planes and their history, lots to see, great illustrations. Personally I find it a bit too big. It's a great topic book to bring along when traveling via airplane, but for that it is a bit big.
