A story about coming to a new home and the diverse people you meet on an airplane. For fans of Last Stop on Market Street.
On this airplane . . .
Someone travels solo,
two travel as one,
and four set out.
In this simple and moving book, a young family takes a plane to their new home. While onboard, they encounter all the people you meet on a plane: a bookworm, a businessperson, tourists, crying babies and daydreamers . . . all with their own stories and all heading somewhere special.
