Review: When it comes to athletes, dancers, or singers, there is always an invention in mind. If you are looking for a book that has many different inventions - with a twist - then the book Flying Feet by Patricia Reilly Giff and illustrated by Alasdair Bright is right for you. In this hilarious third book in the Zigzag Kids series, a young boy named Charlie and his friends Mitchell, Habib, Gina, Sumiko, and Destiny do everything they can do to get a school holiday to occur. But, along the way, they face many different challenges that block them from doing it.

Charlie loves making inventions. But most of them don't really work. However, he's determined to be able to make an invention with shoes that will help him be able to walk up a wall. He's hoping this invention will be the one that makes everyone at Zigzag Afternoon Center think he's as good as his big brother. When the art teacher gets sick and is not able to plan the school holiday, Charlie finds out there is something else he can do to be special. He works with his friends to help make sure the art teacher's holiday can really happen. Flying Feet is filled with fun, and it will become a quick favorite for early readers.

Flying Feet is a great book for early chapter book for readers ages 6 to 9 year olds. It has silly and entertaining illustrations in it. Plus every page is filled with silly occurrences and excitement as the reader wonders what will happen next. Finally, the printing in this book is also larger for younger readers, and the cover is very colorful and shows that the characters in the story are excited to do something really fun. Right away early chapter book readers will be excited too!
