The Klutz Book of Paper Airplanes

Fall 2004 Toys

Manufacturer: Klutz
Price: $16.95
Review:
Clearly written, step-by-step instructions and detailed illustrations teach the reader how to make and fly ten different models of paper airplanes. A difficulty rating (scale of 1-5) for construction and tells how many folds are necessary to complete each plane. The summary table gives specifications for each model: type of plane, flight time, distance, speed, and whether it is better used inside or out.

Model names determine the book's presentation. For example, the ocean backdrop pages describing the Swashbuckler model have a distinctively pirate theme - the illustrated plane is even made from nautical paper. The Space Cruiser instructions are printed on starry pages adorned with space ships, planets, and an astronaut.

Forty sheets of colorful, flight-worthy paper, tips for achieving the best flight, troubleshooting, and games to play with paper airplanes are included in this fun way to learn about aerodynamics, wind speed, thrust, gravity, and precision.
