A story about coming to a new home and the diverse people you meet on an airplane. For fans of Last Stop on Market Street.


On this airplane . . . 
Someone travels solo,

two travel as one,
three return
and four set out.

In this simple and moving book, a young family takes a plane to their new home. While onboard, they encounter all the people you meet on a plane: a bookworm, a businessperson, tourists, crying babies and daydreamers. . . all with their own stories and all heading somewhere special.


Illustrated by Pura Belpré Honoree Sara Palacios
