A humorous and touching set of three illustrated, linked stories about a young boy who faces up to his fear of flying. When Mum and Dad come up with some ideas of where to go on holiday, Leon doesn't want to go to any of the places they suggest. And when his family are invited to go and visit his new baby cousin in Spain, Leon says he doesn't want to go there either. Because Leon is too scared to fly. Aeroplanes are so big, and so loud ...and how do they stay in the air? But when baby Jorge comes to stay, he doesn't mind flying one bit, even when he loses his blanky - and he's only one! Leon realizes that at six and three quarters, it's time to be brave; time to spread his wings.
