Jean, I think you bark up the wrong tree. Get to the root of the matter - don't branch out. Leaf it alone. Do you twig? :?

@Jean: <...maybe your next book must be a flying novel?>

What do you suggest he makes the wings from? Cardboard? And for power-plant? And won't it have the aerodynamics of the proverbial brick sh*thouse, Jean?

I am guessing you meant a novel <about> flying? :P
