With these easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions, young readers learn how to quickly assemble and safely operate their brand new JETT-pup (Junior Electrospheric Time Traveler). Once they get the awesome, kid-operated machine bolted together, young readers will be able to fly faster than the speed of light — do barrel rolls and barnstorming, hover slowly and lazily around the neighborhood, or go and buzz the school building. But the best feature of all — JETT-pup can travel through time! Imagine being able to transport back to where the dinosaurs once roamed, or sneak forward and meet your great, great, great grandchildren. Have fun, and fly safely!
