Read in December, 2011

This Chris Van Allsburg book weaves an amazing tale of the first woman to go over Niagra Falls in a barrel. The wonderful illustrations added a dimension of emotion to the story that really made the story pop. I would highly recommend this book to any reluctant reader or young reader interested in stunts. This is the 1900 version of reality TV! Especially when the reader discovers how the life of Annie Taylor changed after her plunge.
