Praise For A Plane Goes Ka-Zoom!

“An engaging choice for young airplane fans.” --Booklist


“The author keeps the pacing brisk and the language both descriptive and tuneful. Roche squarely nails the brightly lit artwork by getting the tilts and angles of the planes just right, whether lifting off or sitting on the ground, while retaining childlike qualities—the energy, the sense of lived fantasy—that befits a place on the refrigerator door. A deft weave of word and image.” --Kirkus Reviews
