The author and illustrator of such classic books as Cathedral, Pyramid, and Castle, Caldecott Medal winner David Macaulay here continues in the vein of his book The Way Things Work to reveal in captioned drawings how an airplane that weighs as much as a hundred elephants can stay up in the sky for hours at a time.
