A survey of flight in the animal world. A look at birds, insects and bats — how and why they fly. World-record flyers are shown: the biggest, fastest, and farthest. Prehistoric flyers are included, and the evolution of animal flight is explained.

There are large, simple blocks of text for younger readers, and smaller, more informational captions for older readers and adults reading the book aloud.
