Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Sally, Huckle, and Lowly are supposed to go sailing with Huckle and Sally's father, but it starts to rain. Father says they will have to stay inside and play, but their friend Rudolf von Flugel saves the day when he picks the kids up in his airplane-car and whisks them off to the airport for a fun day of sightseeing. Full of airport fun and "Scarry" mishaps.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 2-year old adores this book August 1, 2004
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought the book for our first airplane trip. Since then, my 2-year old asks to read it again and again and will even spend time on her own purusing it. Because of all the detail, it is a great book to keep a child busy on a flight/trip. Unlike the older Richard Scarrys, it shows males and females in non-traditional roles, which is a nice plus.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 2 year old daughter LOVES this book! January 27, 2003
Format:Paperback
Everytime we read this book about the airport, she notices something new. She points everything out to me and wants to read it over and over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will make airports more exciting for your kid July 29, 2003
Format:Paperback
Apart from the usually brilliant, somewhat old-fashioned classic style of Richard Scarry, this book has the added value of being a brilliant travel companion. If you spend a lot of time in airports, you'll be pleased that your child will view the same old routines - check-in, security, boarding - with a lot more informed interest.

1.0 out of 5 stars WARNING!!! Not the same Richard Scarry March 27, 2013
Format:Paperback
This book is imitation Scarry. At first glance it just looks off like a bizzarro Busytown. Everything is not to the same scale or the same perspective or obeys the law of physics. Then there are car crashes, plane crashes, toilets, its always raining. Im no freudian but the artist seems to not like airports. I saw in another review this book is written/drawn by his son which makes a lot of sense. But it is very misleading. Amazon even has his fathers bio up. Granted its just a kids book and only a couple of doucats but I feel snookered. I wanted to warn other parents who read the originals that this is a knock off.

1.0 out of 5 stars Counterfeit Scarry? April 3, 2010
By Lowell
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My family loves Scarry. I spend probably 40 percent of my day reading Richard Scarry books to my 17 month old, because that's what he loves doing . I feel like I could find Richard Scarry in a parade, in the dark, with my eyes closed. Something about this book just ain't right. The drawings are sloppy and crowded. They don't obey the laws of physics. Huckle's dad looks like a knockoff. The colors are wrong... and lastly, the story just doesn't sound like it's written by the S-Man himself. Huckle never says, "Wow!" Sorry... we love airplanes but this book is creeping me out.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Right before we went on a plane for the second time with my toddler son I bought this book. I hoped that it would make the airport and flying a little less nerve-wracking.

The book is a nice size, we bought the paper back so it was light for travel. The book tells a story along with having absolutely awesome pictures. The pictures tell mini stories and my son could spend an hour on each page if he wanted to!

The characters are fun, the colors are bright and the story is easy to read. I recommend this book to anyone looking for an interesting book that will promote quiet time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun little book June 10, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My 4 year old son enjoys me reading this book to him and I enjoy reading it to him. A lot going on in the book to keep it interesting. It's got a cute little story, too, although I don't understand how a bratwurst balloon crashing into a house is a good thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Airport Adventure June 13, 2011
Format:Paperback
A reader of this book will discover that there is more to an airport than planes taking off and landing. From the time the passenger arrives there are many activities taking place. A young reader of this book will look for the many "helpers" that make an airport function.
