Description

* "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."
--Kirkus

"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."
--Bulletin

"Davis delivers a tense and satisfying underdog story, while Ford creates a stylized 19th-century landscape."
--Publishers Weekly

"[An] informative and entertaining account."
--Wall Street Journal
