By crossing two unrelated topics, dinner etiquette and jet plane mechanics, "How to Eat an Airplane" creates an unexpected and absurdly funny experience for young readers. Inspired by the true story of Michel Lotito, who from 1978 to 1980 ate an entire Cessna 150 airplane and holds the Guinness World Record for Strangest Diet, the book covers everything from setting the table with forklifts and toasting with engine oil to fastening your seat belts at the table and taking a nice stretch in between courses, preferably on the airplane’s wings.
There’s a disclaimer included for anyone who believes the book is an actual guide, as well as four pages of fascinating and relevant airplane facts. Perfect for precocious readers and airplane lovers as well as teachers and parents looking to enjoy something unique and fun.
