After all this years, I've borrowed this book from the library.
It's this book that tells kids why they hear these noises on the plane.
And they're eager to find out why. Of course, they are curious. They're not cats.
Yes yes, I know. Curiousity kills a cat. Basically. But that's not what we're here to talk about. What we'll be talking about is this book.
It's written by Mike Downs and all the illustrations are by David Gordon. Jeez...nice names :D
The image you see above is the book's exact cover. This copy of the book from the library had one little problem.
It has a brown marker ruin all over it. This kid doesn't even know how to take care of books. But it's okay, they're still young people.
And of course, they learn things that are super simple than a kid my age. I'm not telling how old I am.
This story basically focuses on the sounds made by the plane. And in this story we got here is a 10 years old kid getting on board a Boeing 737.
I know the model he takes. Simply by telling low the height of the plane is. And how short the wing really is.
Oh! And it's also easy to tell at the "Other Things You Might See, Hear and Feel" page. David have drawn the complete model of the plane.
So yeah, it's easy to tell for me. And for those who are well-recognized with the plane models. And enthusiasts.
Alright so this 10 years old boy runs down the air bridge/jetty and the page says "STOMP, STOMP, TROMP"
It's the sound he made when he's running on the air bridge. The sound only happens when the bridge has a lot of people in it or when you're running.
It's silent when you walk slowly. Then the bottom shows that he is buckling his own seat belt.
I dunno but Mike should've wrote the sounds of the seat belts. Yeah I'm not so sure why. Besides, I didn't even know the reason why.
Maybe the space is too small ):
Then the second page has two sounds. The first comes as a "RRR-RRR-RRR" and below it says "The engines start, one by one. Smoke might puff when this is done.
I dunno what he's talking about a smoke. The smoke only happens when you're taking off. Which creates maximum power to the engines.
Another one says "WHIRRRR" and "On the wings, the flaps slide down. They'll help the plane get off the ground".
And yes, this is true. But the book didn't mention the slats. The slats also help the plane to create more lift. It's okay.
Flats and slats create maximum lift so that the plane could ascend effectively.
And there's one thing before I get on to the next page. There's this podcast that I found and it's basically talking about the book.
It's an audio file. So no video D:
To listen to the podcast. Here's what I need you to do:
