Review: I purchased these books for my son who loves to read. I bought them as Christmas gift - when they arrived I was shocked at their size, they were only the miniature books - I just didn't read the description clearly. My son loves them! He takes them everywhere with him. They fit great in his stocking and he is ever so thankful that Santa brought them for him. Thanks again!

Review: My review isn't based on the size of the book, since (a) the price seems fine for a short kids' book, and (b) I got the digital download for Kindle. If it was good, the price would have been suitable. But ... I found it a really poorly written children's story. Our family loves Paper Bag Princess, and that was our intro to Mr. Munsch. Unfortunately none of his other books we have purchased since that seem to hit that same level of novelty or whimsy or fun. In this, for example, a 5-year-old supposedly makes a plane go from parked to flying by pushing three buttons. MY five-year-old found that less than credible. Then, she crashes horribly, only to emerge unscathed. Again, completely puzzling to my own kid. Parachute? Landed on a haystack? Nope, just a rough landing and it catches a wing and disintegrates, just like a real crash, except oh right its a kids book, um the kid is fine. My son was literally open-mouthed with disbelief. And he's 5. Sure, kids' books are full of unlikely events. "Good Dog Carl" is a recipe for an ER visit, after all. But this book is set in the real world and yet so clueless about it, that I don't know what audience would enjoy it. It is as if the author is telling a story about airplanes having only seen them from the outside, to kids who have never been in or around one, and couldn't be bothered to make up even the most unlikely kind of ending. Just, "tada!" About the only bit that at all reminds me of Paper Bag Princess is that, in the end, the girl follows her dream as an adult. Even that is clunky because it comes directly after and contrary to, a totally unnecessary promise. Maybe it's just that taste of feminine independence that keeps these books popular, or just the halo effect of Paper Bag Princess, which at the time (1980?) was a refreshing change. I can't recommend this at all, alas.

  • Waterstones The Grand Designers

    Price: £44.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: The airplane has experienced phenomenal advancement in the twentieth century, changing at an exponential rate from the Wright brothers to the present day. In this ground breaking work based on new research, Dr John D. Anderson, Jr, a curator at the National Air and Space Museum, analyzes the historical development of the conceptual design process of the airplane. He aims to answer the question of whether airplane advancement has been driven by a parallel advancement in the intellectual methodology of conceptual airplane design. In doing so, Anderson identifies and examines six case histories of 'grand designers' in this field, and challenges some of the preconceived notions of how the intellectual methodology of conceptual airplane design advanced. Filled with over one hundred illustrations which bring his words to life, Anderson unfolds the lives and thoughts of these grand designers.
