Item description for Lisa's Airplane Trip by Anne Gutman & Georg Hallensleben...

When Lisa, a toy animal, takes an airplane across the ocean, traveling by herself for the first time, she watches a movie, has a meal, and gets a tour of the cockpit.

Publishers Description
"Lisa's Airplane Trip" is one of two titles launching the Misadventures of Gaspard and Lisa series. Lisa experiences for the first time in her life what it is like to travel on an airplane when she flies by herself to meet her uncle in the United States. The meal, movie, and other passengers provide endless amusement for Lisa--until an unfortunate accident with her orange juice. Fortunately, a very nice flight attendant makes everything better with a quick wash in the bathroom, followed by a special trip to the cockpit.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lisa's Airplane Trip?

What a wonderful book  Mar 13, 2006
From the simple, true story telling to the beautiful and primitive paintings these books are a joy to read and have. You cannot go wrong with this or any of the other Gaspard and Lisa books.
Dog pajamas!  Oct 9, 2005
Lisa's like a 4-6 yo in dog pajamas. She's the best thing since peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (and that's saying mounds, since those are my favorites). Curious, antsy, fun, and self-amusing. I love her. She and Gaspard, an equally cute black furry person, populate Gutman's series. While Gutman's stories are charming, it's the dynamic and colorful illustrations by Georg Hallenslebsen that make the series a memorable read.

In Lisa's Airplane Trip, Lisa goes on a flight for the very first time by herself. On the airplane she befriends a stewardess, irks a fellow passenger with her constant wriggling, takes a nap (using the extra seat after her frustrated seat companion leaves), spills orange juice ALL over herself, gets a bath, and meets the captain. I was reading this at a small bookstore and was embarassed to find myself giggling at the orange juice explosion: Lisa's trying to peek over her seat, standing on something she shouldn't be, when her meal tray tips and vibrantly colored juice goes flying everywhere--especially on her white fur. Just the type of antics you'd expect a curious child to get up to if left by herself. The whole tale is wonderful, especially for a young person who's going on a flight soon and might be a little worried.
Very Cute!!  Aug 9, 2003
My son loves dogs and airplanes so this book seemed like a perfect fit. He is 18 mos and can't get enough of it. He "reads" it to himself all the time. THe story really is told from a little kid's point of view. The description of the airplane food tray is a perfect example of that. My son loves to identify all the little edibles!
Great for frequent flyer kids  Dec 4, 2002
My 3 year old nephew travels by plane frequently to see his dad. His grandmother gave him this book and he no longer wants any other read to him. He always takes it with him on the airplane so his daddy can read it to him, he obviously finds comfort in knowing he's not the only young one who flies and can be scared. Beautiful images and a really nice, straightforward story.
The best in the series  Sep 19, 2002
My 2 year old daughter loves this book, and so do my husband and I! The illustrations are colorful and entertaining, and the text is engaging and easy to understand. My daughter loves to read along with this book. I also recommend "Lisa In New York", but I didn't care for some of the others in the series. This book is great and I highly recommend it.
