Crossing Niagara by Matt Tavares*

The Death-Defying Tightrope Adventures of the Great Blondin
I love Mr. Tavares' illustrations and books so I was eager to read his newest book.
He reveals the courage and determination of Jean Francois Gravelet, aka-the Great Blondin as he strives to to something "amazing, something impossible and something that had never been done before."
I love how Mr. Tavares captures the characters' emotions by their facial expressions.  Awesome three page spread too!
A must read before traveling to Niagara Falls!
-Borrowed from the library
*Highly recommend (may be a book I will purchase!)
Text set recommendations:  Mirette and Bellini Cross Niagara Falls by Emily Arnold McCully and  Queen of the Falls by Chris Van Allsburg
