This book includes the world record plane and the star of the movie, "Paper Planes". The Star Fighter, on the cover, plays the part of the wind tunnel tested super plane. It's used by the villain to win contest after contest in the movie. Since it's actually an international distance winner, that makes sense. Just another reason to buy this book!
Parents should note that paper folding is a great way to improve eye hand coordination, small motor skills, 3D visualization, direction following skills, and memorization. Paper airplane flying embodies the scientific method; one is always performing small experiments to make the aircraft perform better.
