So many different kinds of people are at the airport and on the planes. The strange and goofy details of the illustrations will make this a book to read over and over again.

Delightfully detailed look at the busy world of air travel. Pore over the pages as you follow one family's airplane ride, and don't forget Monkey!

My favorite thing about this book is all the sub-stories told by the illustrations, inviting the reader to visit and re-visit this book.

An exceptionally illustrated, vibrant picture book that follows an interracial family as they go to the airport. Lots of careful details and narratives to follow, so readers will be entertained by all the subplots hanging out in the background, while learning what to expect from going to the airport and flying on a plane.
