A series of simple questions triggers a playful, imaginative exchange between a child and his father.
"Papa, why can't I fly?" a boy asks. His father's simple answer leads to another question, and then another, until the father playfully demonstrates to his son all the things the child can do. In the end the boy discovers that with a little imagination and some help from his dad he can fly—even without wings!
Kevin Luthardt's highly expressive, comical, full-color illustrations and simply worded text capture the special bond between father and son. Readers will enjoy the playful fun and easy-going relationship depicted in this delightful story.
