Wings takes readers on a fact-packed flight over a fascinating subject.
Written by Tracey Turner, it offers a bird’s-eye view of the first airplanes, the fastest jet planes, beetles, birds, winged horses, flying dragons—even winged unicorns. There's fun, easy-to-read information on wings of all kinds, including plenty of STEM material, presented in a mixture of text and speech bubbles that's perfect for readers aged 7 plus.
With Fatti Burke’s stylish and colorful illustrations, Wings is a wonderful journey of discovery.
