Jet Plane: How It Works
by David Macaulay

Go on an airplane ride.

It weighs as much as 100 elephants, but it can fly for hours. How does a jet do that? From the engine that provides the power and wings that lift the plane off the ground to the cockpit controls and passenger cabin, see how these modern marvels work and what makes them stay in the air.

“A challenging but worthwhile choice for young readers who are curious about flight.” ―Booklist

“Watercolor views of the machinery and airports are just as informative and engaging as one expects from Macaulay. Kids packing their carry-ons for flights of their own will want to tuck in a copy.” ―BCCB

“The beautifully colored illustrations beg for repeated viewings and a larger trim size, but the narrow lines of text in an early-reader format will help children feel comfortable with the information and new terms introduced.” ―School Library Journal
