The Boy and the Airplane

Illustrated by Mark Pett

About The Book

Kindness needs no words in this soaring tale that is ideal for gift-giving.

When a little boy’s prized toy airplane lands on a rooftop, he makes several rescue attempts before devising an unexpected solution.

Rendered in sepia tones and exemplifying a touching message, this wordless story is gracefully open to interpretation, containing a seed of wisdom for every reader.
