    ""Imagining Flight"" considers a great many themes from history in light of the September 11 terrorist attacks and the Columbia disaster. It thus aims to be the first book to explore the entire first century of flight through the eyes of those who watched it from the ground.

    Flight has a great narrative voice, and addresses important themes of revenge, violence, historical trauma and forgiveness. Alexie combines his poetic skill and humor adroitly to address these complex themes. Yet the book was still rife with the major issues that turned me off from Alexie several years ago, that are part of why I think he remains so popular with white people in particular/5. This is a lovely book for getting children thinking and talking about design and purpose as well as a stimulus for imagining all sorts of new modes of transport. Look out for the other book in the same series, All Kinds of Planes (available here).
