Synopsis: Examining the behind-the-scenes technology and people that make exciting events happen, this text focuses on flying across the Atlantic. The text is part of a series which aims to be both fun and educational, and demonstrates the sequence of events and the step-by-step processes behind different events. Accessible text and explanatory diagrams reveal how the various machines and processes work in a way that readers at Key Stage 2 can understand.

From School Library Journal: Grade 4-7-Mellett's attempt to explain how a big-budget, special-effects film is made, from script idea to star-studded premier, is a big flop. Given the 32-page heavily illustrated format, only the most basic aspects of any topic can be discussed. The text is not so much a fluid narrative, but rather a series of short paragraphs describing the artwork. It is sometimes difficult to determine the order in which they are designed to be read, or whether they are to be read in any order at all. There is also a running ribbonlike loop across each spread that contains brief summaries of the processes described on each page. The design is just too busy and distracting. The author and illustrator try to tie the information together by creating a fictional movie to show the filmmaking process. It is a sci-fi, time-travel thriller about a superhero battling dinosaurs and is, in a word, ludicrous. The pen-and-ink and garish watercolor drawings, such as the portrayal of a man with a lizard head and army fatigue pants, look like a low-budget B movie directed by Roger Corman. Readers would be much better served by Jake Hamilton's Special Effects in Film and Television (DK, 1998).
