LATINX AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR
“A calm, informing pre-flight primer and an engaging book to pack to ensure a smooth trip.” —Kirkus Reviews
“[A] close observation of each passenger’s story arc reveals a temporary community shot through with optimism and good cheer…. This thoughtful, human portrait of air travel will make an unusual and resonant addition to all collections.” —School Library Journal
“Digitally finished gouache and cut paper drawings by Palacios are filled with personality and compositions that revel in the cabin’s spaces, including the precious sliver of air between seats. Air travel may not always be glamorous, but the creators’ affection for it is evident and affirming in this book that makes the journey the primary story.” —Publishers Weekly
