One paper plane flies straight and fast and true - Dylan's.
Twelve-year-old Dylan Webber lives in outback Western Australia in a small country town. When he discovers he has a talent for folding and flying paper planes, Dylan begins a journey to reach the World Junior Paper Plane Championships in Japan.
Along the way he makes unlikely new friends, clashes with powerful rivals and comes to terms with his family's past before facing his greatest challenge - to create a paper plane that will compete with the best in the world.
Steve Worland brings you the exciting, heartwarming story of Paper Planes, adapted from the award-winning family film that features a cast of Australia's finest actors, including Sam Worthington, Deborah Mailman, David Wenham and Ed Oxenbould.

decent story, great acting
The story is a decent YA plot, but the real reason I picked this one was for David Wenham's performance, and he did not disappoint. Would be interested in hearing other readings by him.
A wonderful movie, a wonderful book.
My son and I really enjoyed listening to this story. We had seen the movie together a few months prior and this brought it all to life again.
David Wenham is one of the actors in the movie. He is a wonderful actor and a great narrator. This is terrific for long journeys with the kids bored in the car. It's a great Australian story and adults and kids will enjoy it.
