A stunning world-record 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-colour illustration and an explanation of what makes each animal's way of flying so special!
