Product description

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!
