Eagles fly . . ."
Cougars, Panthers, Camels, and Mosquitos. What do these animals have in common? Their names identify the historic airplanes that take flight at this spectacular air show event.
In simple, poetic words and skillfully rered illustrations, Anastasia Suen and Cecco Mariniello introduce the world of flight to children. Youngsters can follow their favorite airplanes as they take off and soar, swoop, creep, and leap about the pages of this book. So climb on board and come for a ride, but don't forget to bring a jacket. It gets chilly in the skies!
Anastasia Suen has a family history with airplanes: her grandparents helped build the P-51 Mustang. She is the author of several children's books including Window Music and Delivery. Anastasia lives in Plano, Texas with her husband and two children.
Cecco Meriniello has written and illustrated many books for children in his native Italy. His artwork has been exhibited in galleries all over the world. He lives in Florence, Italy.
