Let your imagination take you away!
Barbara Bockman, my writing mentor, friend and wonderfully creative author, has graciously allowed me to review and giveaway a signed copy of her new picture book. Fantastic Flight is just that, a fantastically, fun adventure with a homesick Jessica and her Grandpa. Jessica is visiting her grandparent’s beach house, but is really ready to go home.
Grandpa takes her on an outing she will never forget. Their magical journey takes them to Cloud 9 , to a helpful pelican, a butterfly in need of directions and to the unfriendly birds who pops their balloon. Fantastic Flight is action packed; you never want to stop turning the colorful pages! It was so much fun, my 9 year old son loved reading it to me! His only question was when does Jessica come back for another fantastic flight with Grandma this time.
My son and I have read it at least three times. We are still trying to figure out which part is our favorite, since we loved the whole thing! Justin decided he loved the part where the unfriendly birds pop their balloon. Of course, boys like those parts. My favorite part is where Jessica helps the butterfly find her way to Mexico and get her tiny suitcase and map back after a crash with the Pelican’s banner.
I would recommend this book for children ages 4 to 8.
The artwork is fantastic, just like the flight! Jack Foster is very talented. I think he captured Barbara’s story just perfectly. I love the characters’ facial expressions, the action effects and the little details like the water squishing out of their shoes.
Mom Does Reviews gives Fantastic Flight 5 out of 5 Fantastic Stars! Don’t miss this one. Great picture book for your little one, loved one or grandchildren.
