    1. On the surface, this is a really sweet book about a boy and his airplane--something that many of us can relate to if we ever had a favorite toy as a child. The drawings are fun and simple, yet still elicit emotion as you follow the boy and his plane.As you read, it hits you on a much deeper level--the joy of something new and meaningful, which only grows more important as time passes and you realize what life's about. The ending, particularly great, brings the story full circle life is fleeting, [...]


    2. This book should be named, "The Most Patient Boy EVER". Recommended for it's mesmerizing, worldessness and enormity.


    3. Age: Preschool-2nd gradeToys: AirplaneAnother great wordless picture book! It's too bad that parents are so reluctant to pick these up. New mission? Me thinks yes!Because I'm such a hilarious person (ahem) all of the picture books I luuurv are almost all very funny. Rarely do I "5 star" a picture book not reliant on humor to push the book along. Well, Pett presents a boy and his airplane which, during playtime, gets stuck on top of a roof. What's the best solution when your ladder doesn't reach? [...]


    4. I really like most silent comics and picture books, seems like, but my kids (8-10) don't as much. Why is that? I don't know.But I really loved this sweet and hopeful book which tells the story of a boy who gets a toy airplane for a present, sails it on to his roof, and can't get it down. . . for a REALLY long time. The resolution (that others might tell you about, but not me) (and which is the basis for the sweetly improbably ending) my (more cynical) kids thought was stupid, but I loved. I also [...]


    5. The Boy and the Airplane by Steve Anthony is a wordless picturebook that tells the touching story of a boy and his red airplane. When someone gives a young boy a present, he opens it to find out that it is a small toy airplane. Taking it outside, the boy plays with it until he accidentally gets it stuck on the roof of his house. He tries a variety of tactics to try to get it down; however, much to his dismay, nothing works, until he gets the idea to grow a tree. Although I didn’t know how I fe [...]


    6. I first noticed how this book, like the other wordless pictures books I picked up was a landscape. Since the author/illustrator only has pictures to tell a story about a long period of time, it makes sense to have a more natural view. The landscape gives us a sweeping view, like how we see the earth but can also be used to show the vastness of time and life. The only typography that's given to the readers is the title, which looks handwritten in pencil and shaded in, just like a child trying to [...]


    7. This text-less picture book begs for a quiet moment in which imagination might take flight. And yet, it also invites proper sound effects and zooming about with our own pretty red airplane. The Boy and the Airplane reads like a silent film of old if they were played like the comics drawn at the time (ala Little Orphan Annie). We are its accompaniment until, well, even the boy grows silent after his plane becomes stranded on the roof–his mouth literally disappears.The story begins with a boy re [...]


    8. This is a very charming tale of a young boy who receives the gift of a toy airplane. The boy loves his toy airplane and plays with it everywhere and all the time. One day the young child was outside throwing the plane as high as it could go. He kept throwing it and throwing it until it didn't come down. The boy sees that he has gotten the plane stuck on the roof. He, as any young child would, tries everything he can think of to retrieve his distressed airplane; from lassoing it as a cowboy to ho [...]


    9. This book instantly got an extra star when I read on the very last page, "For Tiffany, who was worth the wait." And that's just the last page! This is a charming little book. There are no word to read, so you have to let the illustrations speak for themselves. I always get excited when a book is like this because when I'm reading books to kids I don't actually have to read it to them (heheh), and I've always felt when it comes to picture books and graphic novels if they're using a lot of narrati [...]


    10. Not as touching for me as the Girl and the Bicycle. And I couldn't help thinking that he could just have asked a taller person to use the ladder. But it's still cute to see the boy go through ideas, and then waiting through his final idea (which was funny and also sad). The ending was sweet though. The kids would follow this much better in storytime, and probably get a laugh from it. Worth trying.7/8/15 Been planning to read this for months. Put it in my Machines & Things theme. But as I was [...]


    11. What a clever and elegant book. I have to admit that as I flipped through the book, I was not initially impressed but once I was hooked, I had to read it again to really enjoy the story. A boy is handed a box with a toy airplane in it. He plays with it, zooming around, until the plane gets stuck on a roof. He tries a variety of solutions to retrieve the plane and finally decides to plant a tree (!) so he can reach the roof. The next series of illustrations shows the boy growing up and the tree g [...]


    12. "The Boy and the Airplane" is a beautiful work of realistic fiction. In this wordless picture book, the illustrations depict a simple, yet somewhat surprising plot line. As the story begins, a young boy is enjoying his toy airplane in an indiscriminate setting (the illustrations are simple sketches on solid-color, muted backgrounds with little detail). Unfortunately, the boy's airplane gets stuck on the roof, and after trying several different things to get it down, he comes up with a master pla [...]


    13. A wordless picture book that does not obscure it's profound simplicity the way some wordless picture books can. Elegantly depicted in sepia tones, this is a cyclical tale mirroring life, inviting independent thinking and celebrating tenacity.But of course, that's merely how I read it.


    14. If patience is a virtue, this may be the most virtuous character of all time. A touching, wise, and completely delightful wordless story.


    15. As other reviewers have felt, I I loved this book more than my children. It was a five-star book for me. They all gave it four stars. It's a beautiful story. All of us immediately appreciated this is by the creator of The Girl and the Bicycle. and this is the same type of feel. Gorgeous illustrations. And an even more gorgeous message. It is always better to give than to receive, even the things we hold most dear.A brief synopsis. A little boy is gifted an airplane. He loses it on the roof of th [...]


    16. Mark Pett's wordless picture book about a boy's perseverance and interesting approach to solving a problem.Pett's book is in landscape form which lends itself nicely, at times, to the movement and the perspective of the toy airplane. This is especially effective on the sixth turn of the page. Additionally, the book is similar to a graphic novel in it's use of comic strip spaces just without the gutters.Pett's color palette is quite muted as most pages are in sage green, otherwise the only except [...]


    17. Text-to-self: I relate to this book because as a child, I have had toys go into the neighbors yard or on a rough or in a creek and I had to think of ways to get it back. Text-to-text: This book reminds me of a book called Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. I am reminded of this book because the main character has a beloved hatchet that helps him survive, and at one point in the book, he loses it and has to find it. Text-to-world: I believe this book can relate to any child that has accidentally lost somet [...]


    18. The genre is realistic fiction because it involves events that can easily happen in real life.Target audience: Primary (K-3)Text-to-Self: I used to lose a lot of toys and balls, especially by accidentally kicking them into trees or onto the roof of my house, and my dad would always have to get the biggest ladder we had and try to knock them back down.Text-to-Text: It reminds me of Sidewalk Flowers by Sydney Smith because the illustrations of both are done in watercolors.Text-to-World: The book r [...]

Professional Recommendation/Review #1: • Horn Book A little boy's beloved toy airpla [...]


    20. Genre: Realistic FictionTarget Audience: Children grades PreK-2Text-to-Text: The Boy and the Airplane made me think of the Little Golden Book, Planes based on the Disney movie. Text-to-Self: I relate to this book because I am fascinated by airplanes and my brother in law is a pilot. Text-to-World: This book made me ponder about the Wright brothers and if they had ever thought about flying throughout their childhood.


    21. I quickly read this at the library this afternoon and it made me smile a big goofy smile at the end. Reading it again (twice) later this evening with my nearly three-year-old son, I picked up on a major detail that I had missed the first time which made it all the better. No words in this book, but the pictures tell a good story. And there is plenty of content for young readers to ask questions about. I'm certain that I'll be reading this a couple more times before returning it to the library.


    22. The 'solution' is silly. It only works as a metaphor, imo. The ending is nice, if one has accepted the premise, the themes of loyalty and patience. I found it interesting that the little boy looks like a middle-aged man, and the old man looks more childlike & innocent; I wonder if it was intentional. Some spreads were charming, some just meh. I doubt I'll bother looking for others by the author.


    23. Title: The Boy and the AirplaneAuthor: Mark PettIllustrator: Mark PettGenre: Wordless picture bookTheme(s): Growing old, patience, play, youth, giving, kindness Opening line/sentence: N/ABrief Book Summary: Illustrations depict a boy and his beloved airplane. When the boy gets the airplane stuck on the roof of the house and cannot get the airplane down after many attempts, he plants a tree. The boy grows old as the tree grows, but once the tree grows tall the old man retrieves the airplane and g [...]


    24. I liked it. I was sort of surprised by the turn/direction the book took with the little boy turning into an old man and eventually getting his airplane.


    25. No words. The boy loves his airplane. He flies it all over. It gets stuck on the roof. He can't get it down so he plants a tree and gets it down when he's an old man.




    26. Good wordless book about a plane getting stuck on the roof and an unusual solution to the problem. Nicely done.



    27. Genre: Realistic FictionAudience: PrimaryText-to-world: When I read this book it made me think about people from "back in the day" and people today. In this book the boy gets the plan stuck on the roof and can't get it down. He ends up planting a tree and waiting for it to grow to get the plane down. People in todays world would never do that. First, they probably wouldn't be playing outside because everyone is addicted to technology. In reality, they would either have a parent get it, find othe [...]
