KIRKUS REVIEW

A putative flight, as a preparation--accurate down to the flight attendants' spiel, but absolutely in a vacuum. The scatty, jokey, adult-ish cartoons show two cartoony kids--a boy of maybe six, a girl of three or so--proceeding (alone) through the preliminaries at the airport, then boarding the plane, then en route, then deplaning--where ""Some people you know are waiting for you."" Nothing at all happens at any point; the kids have no identity or personality. Nothing is really explained either--what we're told is just what every plane traveler encounters. So, while this might have some utility with kids who actually will be traveling alone, it might also take the bloom off a first trip for others--and certainly it engenders no excitement.
