Read in June, 2012

I generally don't include picture books on Goodreads, but I really liked this one. It's based on the true story of Ella Ewing, who lived in the late 1800s/early 1900s and was over 8 feet tall. She willingly appeared in museums and other exhibitions and consequently became famous and financially independent. She enjoyed traveling the world and was the social center of town when she was home. What a story.
