Part of the "Look Inside Cross-Sections" series, this title looks at jets. The artworks cut across, up, down and through the objects, allowing every hidden part to be examined. Detailed text, together with explanatory labels, accompanies each double-page spread.

Grade 4-6. Jets and Tanks join the plethora of cross-section titles now flooding the market. The topics and colorful covers will attract audiences too young for the text and vocabulary. The main text is often vague as to the origin of the vehicles. Four to six paragraphs of additional information are scattered around the edges of the main illustration. The two-page chapters are filled with detailed drawings of cutaway and dismantled vehicles with various parts labeled. A technical data box contains a scale-model line-drawing of each vehicle. The views and information given in these boxes are not consistent from one page to the next. Skip these offerings in favor of the more standard titles.?Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS
