Fantastical Flying Machines by Timothy Knapman

Join Sally and Jack on an extraordinary air race filled with hot air balloons, flying ice lollies and bubble gum rockets. But will their fantastical flying machine speed them into first place, or will the devious cheater Baron Von Bang Bang trick his way into the lead? This is a colourful, topsy-turvy airship adventure from an exciting new illustrator. This title comes with spinning, twirling, lift-the-flap pages and an amazing pop-up finale.
