The Airport Book
To visit grandparents, a family travels to the airport, boards the plane, and flies to their sunny destination. What is seen along the way is noted in crisp text and straightforward, appealing illustrations. A missing toy monkey adds a satisfying subplot to follow visually.
Books illustrated by Lisa Brown
A cat, now a mummy, explores the pyramid in search of his much-loved owner, they young queen, Hatshepsut. Stylized illustrations effectively present ancient Egypt, its hieroglyphics, and the affection between a pet and its owner. Back matter introduces mummies as well as to the period and place in which they were used.
