A stunning world-records book of animal flight, by the author-and-illustrator team behind the bestselling Book of Bones!

Meet ten fascinating flyers through a series of superlatives – and guess who's who while learning about airborne animals. From the fastest (white-throated needletail) to the most acrobatic (flying fox bat), and from the best glider (colugo) to the best backward flyer (hummingbird), each master of flight is cleverly depicted in a blueprint-inspired diagram, accompanied by playful, informative text. The stunning page-turn reveal features a full-color illustration and an explanation of what makes each animal's way of flying so special.

Ages 5-8

Baker & Taylor
A follow-up to the best-selling Book of Bones shares profiles of 10 superlative bird species, from the super-fast needletail and the gliding colugo to the acrobatic flying fox bat and the backward-flying hummingbird. Illustrations.
