From the longest-distance skyjacking in American history to a Little Prince who has had his heart broken by a rose, these books are guaranteed to put your head in the clouds.

Who needs destinations? This summer, we're focusing on the journey. All these books — some old, some new — will transport you: by train, plane, car, bike, boat, foot, city transit, horse, balloon, rocket ship, time machine and even the odd giant peach. Bon voyage! (Taxes and fees not included).
