Humans aren’t designed to fly. That’s why the first people to try it came to a very sticky end! (And that’s why this is a Horrible Science book!) But after centuries of death-defying stunts, blood-curdling blunders and fearsome flops, people have finally taken to the skies!Read on to discover:
- how to see the earth’s shadow
- how to build a flying saucer
- how brave bird-men flew on feather wings (and died!)
- how the zeppelin Hindenburg burned to a crisp in just 34 seconds
- how some brave pilots flew faster than sound. Boom!
- which woman’s perilous plane was held together with piano wire
- what happened to the world’s first flying sheep
A book stuffed with hair-raising heights, dizzying drops, terror, tears, triumphs – and squishy bits. It’s fearsome fun! Just don’t forget your parachute!

Lexiles are the global standard in reading assessment. They are unique as
they are able to measure a child and a book on the same scale – ensuring
the right book gets to the right child at the right time.
