Science, history, and engineering combine in this uplifting non-fiction picture book about the invention of the world's most iconic amusement park ride, the Ferris Wheel.
* "Davis' picture-book bio soars, inspires, and keeps (the pages) ever turning"
—Booklist, starred review
"The modernist look, inherently interesting topic, and strong documentation...make this title a positive addition."
—School Library Journal
"Kids who take ferris wheels for granted should find this history eye-opening."
"Davis’s picture-book account of the Ferris Wheel construction does a first-rate job of capturing the many risks—to civic pride, financial success, and public safety—that attached to the first iteration of what most readers have already enjoyed as a local carnival attraction."
"Davis delivers a tense and satisfying underdog story, while Ford creates a stylized 19th-century landscape."
"[An] informative and entertaining account."
—Wall Street Journal
