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.
Cartoonist Mark Pett's varied and worldly experiences include teaching English and "skewering Czech political figures" as an editorial cartoonist in Prague; teaching sixth grade in rural Mississippi (a stint that later inspired his Mr. Lowe strip); and working as a freelance cartoonist.
