From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 1. This exciting, fun-filled adventure is sure to entice emergent readers, who will enjoy the short rhyming quatrains. They will be encouraged to try the text independently, although some of the words, such as "ultralights" and "scenic," are not easy. When Toad observes that ducks can swim but he can't fly, "An idea pops into my brain! An airplane ride! I'll go right now! I'll take my friends Pig and Cow!" The humorous illustrations give ample clues to the context and also reflect the characters' personalities. Pig and Cow's faces show that they are not as confident of their safety as Toad is when the plane takes off. And then, to his friends' chagrin, Toad is invited to pilot the plane. "Look out, birds! Toad's flying now!" An enjoyable romp into reading.?Betty Teague, Blythe Academy of Languages, Greenville, SC

From Booklist:

Gr. 1^-2. Playing in his pond with Pig and Cow, Toad sees ducks flying overhead and decides to take his friends flying. At a nearby airport, he hires a pilot who takes them up in a little propeller plane, flies low over their neighborhood, and hands over the controls to the happy Toad. Short phrases of rhyming verse tell the story, and the end rhymes will help beginners figure out some of the words. As excited about airplanes as the famous Mr. Toad was about motor cars, this Toad makes an engaging character, particularly for readers who enjoyed Toad on the Road (1992), Railroad Toad (1993), and Toad Eats Out (1995). With brightly colored cartoonlike drawings and an enthusiastic narrator, this picture book will appeal to many young readers. Carolyn Phelan
