Pictures telling stories
THE BOY AND THE AIRPLANE by Mark Pett. Simon and Schuster, 2013.
Without words, Pett tells the story of a young boy and his toy airplane. Playing with the plane is a source of great pleasure until the plane becomes lodged on a rooftop. It is too high for a ladder to reach, a lasso does not work either. The solution will surprise readers of all ages. The old time quality of the illustrations emphasizes the timeless nature of this story about determination and patience.
