Angela's Airplane by Robert Munsch


Angela's Airplane by Robert Munsch

When Angela's father takes her to the airport, a terrible thing happens: Angela's father gets lost. She looks underneath aeroplanes, all around aeroplanes and finally decides to look inside an empty aeroplane...As she plays with the buttons and levers, another terrible thing happens - the doors close. She presses more buttons and the engines start up. So she pushes all the buttons at once and the plane takes off...Oh no! Follow Angela's misadventure through ten hilarious picturebook spreads that will have youngsters on the edge of their seats!


Munsch tells a wonderfully whimsical story of a five-year-old girl whose curiosity coaxes her into accidentally flying off with an airplane. Angela's personality and spirit are captured perfectly in Martchenko's depiction of her.
