High-flying paper airplanes Juvenile Book High-flying paper airplanes
From the Concorde to the Stealth Bomber, these more than 35 great-looking, superbly aerodynamic paper craft look amazingly like the actual planes, helicopters, and gliders they're modeled on. And, along with this easy-to-follow and well-illustrated manual, all you need to construct them are paper, some basic origami folds, and a few everyday supplies such as a pencil, glue, scissors, and tape. True to its name, the Simple Jet is so uncomplicated to make, it's worth creating an entire fleet in different colors. The Arrow-head flies fast and true; decorate its huge wings with personal insignia. Try experimental planes, such as the Grumman A-6 Intruder; stunt flyers, including the Avro Vulcan, especially made for performance flights; and many other exciting craft.

It had been startling and disappointing to me to find out that story books had been written by people,
that books were not natural wonders, coming up of themselves like grass.
