Egg has watched bats, airplanes, balloons and clouds all his life and wants nothing more than to be able to fly...so he decides to take matters into his own hands when he climbs the Very Tall Tower and takes the plunge, quite literally! Grey does a wonderful job of using serious tones in humorous ways. This would be a fun way to introduce Bernoulli's principle! EL-ESSENTIAL. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
