Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Minton the spotty salamander loves things that move—boats, planes, cars, and trucks—and always finds just what he needs to make these vehicles. After each story, there are directions for making Minton’s favorite modes of transportation out of everyday kitchen materials such as margarine tubs, plastic bottles, corks, and skewers.

In the first story, Minton can’t wait to make a boat so that he and his friend Turtle can sail to an island on the horizon. Once there, they meet Bouncer the acrobat who has been stranded since she made the most gigantic, enormous jump and flew right out of the city and over the ocean. In the second story, Minton must build an airplane so he can fly with Turtle and Bouncer back to the city in time for the circus. A strong wind in the night blows Bouncer right out of the plane and Turtle comes to the rescue. Simple instructions for making a model boat and airplane are included.
