Myro, the Smallest Plane in the World is an exciting new series of six children’s picture books and one song book, all about aeroplanes and all set in awesome Australia.

In book 1, Myro Arrives in Australia, Myro the microlight meets his new hangar-mates and is quickly off exploring. He soon makes a daring rescue of a sheep in trouble, flying it back to the farm in time to help deliver a little lamb.

In Myro and the Bush Fire, Myro is hailed a hero for showing quick thinking and bravery when he takes off through thick black smoke to get help for his aeroplane friends trapped on the farm.

In “Myro and the Tiger Moth”, Myro meets a broken down old biplane and goes on a search for parts he needs to become fully restored and flying again.

In Myro and the Railcar, Myro tries to race the shiny and wise old diesel railcar to the top of Australia’s Blue Mountain railway. But after a near miss and the fright of his life, Myro makes a new friend and learns that wisdom is much safer than speed.

In Myro and the Skydivers, Myro flies higher than he’s ever flown before to prove he can take a skydiver parachuting, just like the big planes can! But he knows he should have asked permission and trouble is now just around the corner...

In Myro and the Jet Fighter, the last story book of this first series, Myro is quick to swallow his pride when a mocking supersonic plane crashes in the Australian Bush. The Smallest Plane in the World races to the rescue and soon becomes the toast of the Jet Fighters back at the airbase.
